Man Arrested in Murder at Pembroke Pines Apartment Community

A man has been arrested in connection with the murder of a 23-year-old man at a Pembroke Pines apartment complex earlier this week.

Bryan Carl Fenders Bernadelle, 19, is facing a premeditated murder charge in the fatal shooting of Kadeem Smith on Wednesday.

The shooting happened before 1 a.m. at the Bella Grande community in the 10300 block of NW 8th Street, police said.

Neighbors heard multiple gunshots and when officers arrived on scene, they found the man with multiple gunshot wounds.

Smith was described as a "good kid" who works and lives with his mother and was a part of the Navy JROTC a few years ago.

Bernadelle remains in Broward County jail without bond, online records show. Attorney information was not available.
