Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff's Office homicide detectives are actively pursuing leads in the savage beating of a man left to die in the street in the 3400 block of unincorporated Broward County.
Details are still sketchy, but it appears that the victim was involved in an argument at a Ft. Lauderdale tavern shortly before 2:00 am on Friday, March 08, 2002.
The victim reportedly left the bar got into a vehicle, and followed the bar patron with whom he had been arguing. While being pursued, the patron apparently used his cell phone to call several friends for protection.
Sometime around 2:00 am, the victim’s car pulled over in front of a home in the 3400 block of NW 6th Court with the bar patron pulling over behind him. Almost immediately, two other vehicles showed up. In each of those two vehicles were three friends of the patron who had been followed by the victim.
A fight ensued, the victim was evidently set upon by several of the patron’s friends, severely beaten and left to die in the street.
BSO deputies were notified of the brawl and rushed to the scene, but the suspects had already fled.
The victim was taken to Broward General Medical Center where he died at about 9:00 this morning.
