FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 21 (UPI) -- A miniature crime wave struck Broward County, Fla., when three homicides, a fatal hit-and-run and an armed robbery were reported in one 12-hour period.
The violent incidents -- which do not seem to be related -- began at 1:22 a.m. Saturday, when a man who goes by the nickname “El Tigre” allegedly walked into a Fort Lauderdale sports bar and shot Wilson Zelaya, 33, without saying a word, The Miami Herald reported Sunday.
At 6 a.m., Andre Hall, 26, was found shot to death in the parking lot of his apartment complex.
Around noon Saturday, Fort Lauderdale police began investigating the death of 22-year-old Devon Mapp, whose bullet-riddled body was found in an alley, the newspaper said.
Also, the Broward Sheriff’s Office investigated a 6 a.m. convenience story robbery, and the Florida Highway Patrol looked for the driver of a Ford pickup truck involved in a fatal hit-and-run incident. The crash caused a driver to swerve off the road, and the driver was killed when the vehicle struck a pole.
