Nearly a dozen firearms, including rifles, ammunition and body armor were discovered at a West Park home Wednesday after law enforcement officials issued an arrest warrant for one of the four suspects involved in an aggravated assault with a firearm in Miami Beach, police said.

The Miami Beach Police Department and the U.S. Marshal’s Service Fugitive Taskforce developed a coordinated operation to take all four suspects into custody.

On July 15, the Broward Sheriff’s Office SWAT/Fugitive Task Force and the Violence Intervention Proactive Enforcement Response Unit assisted the MBPD by serving an arrest warrant for 27-year-old Risson Beaubrun, one of the suspects stemming from the assault.

The investigation revealed that Beaubrun was residing at a home in the 100 block of Newton Road in West Park that was housing multiple firearms.

VIPER detectives arrested several individuals at the West Park residence who face charges to include possession of firearm by a convicted felon, trafficking oxycodone, carrying a concealed weapon and carrying a prohibited weapon.

It was also determined that one of the individuals had been convicted of murder in Miami-Dade, police said.

The three additional suspects involved in the Miami Beach assault were arrested by law enforcement agencies in Aventura, Miramar and Pembroke Pines, according to a report by the Broward Sheriff's Office.
