Description of Incident:

An armed and dangerous shooting suspect is on the loose in south Florida and the Broward Sheriff's Office is asking for help tracking him down.

Investigators say an ongoing argument between 23-year old Morris Brown and his girlfriend,
21-year old Lakesha Hall, reached a boiling point shortly after 3:30 the morning of January 22, 2002.

According to detectives, Brown and Hall had been fighting throughout the night at their apartment at the Tropical Gardens Apartments, 5025 NW 36th St., J-312, Lauderdale Lakes. Hall’s mother 44-year old Sharon Hill who lived at the apartment, and other family members, had been there trying to ease the tension between Hall and Brown.

Sometime around 3:30 in the morning, Brown had apparently agreed to leave the dwelling and was packing a bag. For some reason, the boyfriend reportedly pulled out a semiautomatic handgun, opened fire, and fled the scene.

Hall and Hill were each shot multiple times. They were taken to Broward General Medical Center where they were listed in critical condition.

None of the others in the apartment at the time of the shooting, including Hall’s sons, ages two and five, were reported hurt.

Morris Brown is considered armed and dangerous. Do not attempt to make contact with him. If you know his whereabouts, you should dial 9-1-1, or call BSO communications at (954) 767-8740 or Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS. A reward of up to $1,000.00 may be available for your information.
