Police released surveillance video in the hopes of identifying the suspects of an armed robbery that escalated into a fatal shooting last week in Fort Lauderdale.
It happened before 2 a.m. Friday in the parking lot of a Walgreens on West Sunrise Boulevard, according to Fort Lauderdale police.
The two victims were going back to their car when a suspect tried to rob one of them. Another suspect held the second victim at gunpoint and demanded his jewelry, police said.
One of the suspects shot one of the victims several times. They then ran to a nearby vehicle and drove away.
Roderick Gallon, 23, of Lauderhill, was taken to the hospital and later died, police said. The second victim was a teenager and police say they will not release his identity.
Gallon's family is asking the public for help. They say he left behind a 4-year-old daughter.
"My son played basketball ball like a normal kid, but normal kids don’t dance my baby danced his whole life," Gallon's father said.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Detective Elijah Thomas at 954-828-6093 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
