Description of Incident:
The Broward Sheriff’s Office is investigating the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old man, gunned down outside his Pompano Beach home Friday night.
The killing occurred at about 8:26 pm at the home of the victim, Nestor Alvarez. Alvarez, a Mexican national, shared the duplex apartment at 500 SW 2nd Court with another man. According to witnesses, Alvarez and his roommate were outside their home when two men approached. Words were exchanged and the men attacked Alvarez and his roommate. One of the suspects pulled a handgun and fired several shots, striking and killing Alvarez.
Alvarez was rushed to North Broward Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 8:51 p.m.
After the shooting, the suspects fled the scene on foot. BSO deputies, K-9 teams and our helicopter scoured the neighborhood for two hours but could not find the fleeing felons. They are both described as black males, in their early 20s, with thin builds and about 6 feet tall with short cut hair.
The motive for the murder is unknown at this time.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Broward Sheriff’s Office at 954-765-4321 or Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS.
