Description of Incident:

The Broward Sheriff's Office Robbery Unit is releasing the names of two men and two boys shot Tuesday night during an armed robbery outside a four-unit apartment in Lauderdale Lakes.

· Dedrick Phillips, 24, was shot in the buttocks and was treated and released.
· Courtney Turner, 24, was shot in the right shoulder and was treated and released.
· Nefta Malcolm, 17, was shot in the left leg and was treated and released.
· Alex Rowland, 17, was most seriously wounded, sustaining two gunshot wounds – one to the left chest and one to his left thigh – and remains in the Intensive Care Unit

According to information gathered by BSO Robbery detectives, two or three men armed with handguns approached the four victims and shouted, “…Give it up!” The suspects then opened fire, wounding the foursome. After the shooting, at least one suspect took jewelry and cash from the victims and fled on foot.

The shooters remain unknown and are described only as black males. Robbery detectives have some leads but no solid suspect information. Anyone with any information is urged to call the Broward Sheriff’s Office at 954-765-4321 or CrimeStoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS.
