FLORIDA — A fatal Fort Lauderdale armed robbery shooting was caught on camera and police are hoping the new surveillance footage will help them find the suspects.
The footage released by Fort Lauderdale Police Tuesday shows the suspects burglarizing a car shortly before the Oct. 16 shooting that left 23-year-old Roderick Gallon dead.
Police said Gallon and another man were walking to their car in the parking lot of One West Sunrise Boulevard just before 2am when they were approached by the two armed suspects.
One of the suspects held the first victim at gunpoint and demanded he hand over his jewelry, while the other suspect robbed Gallon and shot him multiple times.
The shooting was captured on a surveillance camera from a nearby business.
Both suspects ran to a nearby vehicle and fled the area. Gallon was transported to Broward Health Medical Center where he later died.
Family members said Gallon, of Lauderhill, left behind a 4-year-old daughter.
