POMPANO BEACH, FL – A Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide sergeant spotted a suspect who fled after he shot and killed a homeless man in Pompano Beach last week. Through video surveillance and witnesses, homicide detectives were able to identify the suspect as Ruddy Germain.

On Wednesday, August 19, shortly after 7 p.m., Homicide Sergeant Kevin Forsberg was conducting surveillance in the 400 block of Northeast 22nd Avenue in Pompano Beach when he observed Germain walking and took him into custody.

At approximately 9:38 p.m. on Tuesday, August 11, Broward County Regional Communications received a call in reference to a shooting between the Burger King and 7-Eleven on North Federal Highway in Pompano Beach. A subsequent call was received at approximately 9:41 p.m. in reference to the shooting at 14 N. Federal Highway. 

Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies responded, and upon their arrival, they located a victim, identified as Joseph Surace, suffering from a gunshot. Pompano Beach Fire Rescue responded and transported Surace to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
