Two Killed, Two Remain Hospitalized After Late Night Shootings in West Park

Two people were killed, including a pregnant woman, and two others were rushed to the hospital – including a young child – in separate shootings in West Park Thursday night.

Broward Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of three people – a man, woman and child – being shot in their car outside of a home at Southwest 22nd Street and 45th Avenue just before 11 p.m.

The adult victims - identified by family members as 28-year-old Tyrell Myrick and his girlfriend, 28-year-old Patrice Nunnaly - were taken to Memorial Hospital in Hollywood, where Nunnaly, who was five-months pregnant, later died and Myrick - who was shot in the back and ribs - remained in serious condition.

"We were all talking outside and we went back inside. Ten, 20 minutes later this happens," said Myrick's sister Ashley Milline. "I was in the room laying down and I heard four, five gunshots and came outside."

Their daughter, nine-year-old Kalaya Clark, was taken to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, where she also is in serious condition after being shot in the thigh, knee and arm. Milline brought her niece back in the home after she saw what happened and also tried to help Nunnaly - but it was too late.

"I did see her from the glimpse when I was bringing my niece inside. It looked like she was dead already," Milline said. She later told NBC 6 that the family had moved to South Florida from Georgia just one week ago and that Nunnaly was five months pregnant - something that has not been confirmed by police.

Less than an hour later, another man - identified by deptuies as 26-year-old Cody Sanders - was found shot off Southwest 23rd Street and 54th Avenue. He was also taken to Memorial Hospital, where Sanders later died.

Police do not believe the shootings are related, but have not officially ruled that out. Now, families of both victims are demanding justice.

"I just hope whoever did this comes forward," Milline said. "We don't have beef with anyone. My family, we don't do this."

Anyone with information is asked to call BSO or Broward CrimeStoppers.
