Description of Incident:

Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives arrested a Miami Gardens man in connection with a deadly confrontation at an auto body shop in Pembroke Park that ended with two people dead and two hospitalized Tuesday night.

Jemar Reid, 22, was arrested late Wednesday afternoon at the Public Safety Building in Fort Lauderdale. He was booked in BSO’s Main Jail and faces one count of manslaughter.

Shortly before 8:30 p.m. on July 23, a group of individuals, including Reid, confronted a mechanic at Dwayne’s Auto Body Shop located in the 2400 block of Southwest 31st Avenue in Pembroke Park. Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives said when the verbal confrontation escalated to physical violence, four people were shot.

The group of more than three people left the scene and drove to the BSO South Broward district office, which was nearby at 3201 W. Hallandale Beach Blvd. in Pembroke Park. When the vehicle arrived at the district, a lieutenant and other deputies started rendering aid to the three gunshot suspects and requested Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue to respond. BSO paramedics arrived, continued the medical treatment and transported all three to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood. Detectives would later learn that the trio are brothers, and the oldest brother, Daveion Reid, 25, died at the hospital. 

Deputies who responded to the auto body shop discovered the lifeless body of the victim, Dwayne Lynch. 

The homicide investigation continues.
