Description of Incident:
A Deerfield Beach man was shot and killed early Sunday morning while attending a birthday party in Pompano Beach.
Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to 320 N.E. 30 Court after receiving a 911 call at 3:39 a.m. regarding a shooting victim. When deputies arrived, no one was at the residence. Moments later, BSO Deerfield Beach personnel notified the deputies that the victim, later identified as Emanuel Joseph, was driven to Broward Health North hospital by some of the partygoers. The 26-year-old victim was pronounced dead at the hospital.
After receiving a tip identifying the shooter, BSO homicide detectives made contact with Marckenson Demard, 25, of Deerfield Beach, and brought him to the Public Safety Building for questioning. Demard was arrested Monday morning and faces one count of second-degree murder. Homicide detectives said Demard and Joseph were friends. Demard told detectives that the shooting was an accident.
Investigators said more than 100 people attended the house party celebrating someone’s 21st birthday, and they believe someone saw Demard shoot Joseph.
Anyone who witnessed the shooting or has information on this case is urged to call BSO homicide Det. John Curcio or Det. John Berrena at (954) 321-4210.
