Description of Incident:

Friends of murder victim, Philip Antonino, and Pembroke Park business owners have collected more than $10,000 in donations to raise the Crime Stoppers reward for information on his case. The anonymous tip that leads to the arrest of his killer can now collect up to $14,000.

Just after 9 a.m. Sept 22, BSO responded to reports of shots fired at the Kwik Stop, 5551 W. Hallandale Beach Blvd. in Pembroke Park. Philip Antonino was walking back to his place of work when he saw something he couldn't let slide. A man was berating an elderly man who was cutting the grass in the field adjacent to the convenience store. Antonino stepped in and told the man to back off. Moments after their first words, the suspect pulled out a gun and shot Antonino multiple times.

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue transported Antonino to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

The suspect fled the scene on foot traveling northbound on West 56th Avenue. Homicide detectives describe the suspect as a black male. He has a thin build and a dark complexion, possibly in his 30s and approximately 5 foot 8 inches tall. He is bald and was clean-shaven. He wore black jeans and a long-sleeve black shirt with white text on the sleeves.

Anyone with information is asked to contact BSO Detective Valerian Perez at 954-321-4356 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or browardcrimestoppers.org. Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $14,000.
