Lauderhill Police released surveillance video showing two gunmen opening fire on a man at a strip mall.
The victim, 27-year-old Conrad Luke, died on the scene of multiple gunshot wounds on Wednesday night of last week. Police are calling the incident a brazen crime commited in a place where therre were many people and cars.
"Other bystanders could have been injured as a result of this. But obviously the shooter didn’t care, and it appears as though he was determined to get the victim," Capt. Constance Stanley said.
The surveillance shows that the suspects were waiting for Luke to leave a club and that there was not an altercation before the shooting, police said.
"The shooting was not related to an argument,” said Detective Sgt. David Hennessy, the supervisor on the case.
The victim’s sister, Karen Luke, has said that an argument over a bicycle led to the shooting.
Her brother was shot in the parking lot of a strip mall on the 1600 block of N. State Road 7 at about 11:30 p.m. on June 27, according to police.
The primary shooter was a man wearing a T-shirt, purple pants and a purple cap, while the second shooter was wearing a green shirt with white stripes on the arm, and a baseball cap with a white front, according to police.
The video clearly shows two people talking to the shooters before the incident. Police describe them as persons of interest because they can identify the shooters, they said.
“There were definitely people who were aware, or around, or possibly know one or both of the suspects involved. We’re trying to identify those people and have them come forward," Stanley said.
The shooters are armed, dangerous and at large, said police, who are hoping people will come forward to identify the people caught on tape. Anyone with information is urged to call Lauderhill Police.
