PIO Number: 17-10-12

Broward Sheriff's Office Robbery Unit detectives are searching for an unidentified male who walked up to Jorge Castillo, just after 1 a.m. on August 19th, as he sat outside his home in Unincorporated Broward County. The man demanded the victim's property but before the victim could react, the suspect shot Castillo and fled on foot.









The victim's wife and child were inside their home at the time of the shooting. Despite being wounded, Castillo was able to make his way back inside his home.

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue transported Castillo to Broward Health Medical Center.

The shooter is described as a male with a dark complexion and short hair. He wore a white hoodie-styled sweatshirt with "Broadway" written on the front and black shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to contact BSO Detective Armando Enrique at 954-321-4233 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or www.browardcrimestoppers.org.
