Detectives Seek Thief And Shooter In Broward County Gas Station Robbery

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – It began with the theft of $4 worth of soda and ended with shots fired outside a gas station convenience store. Now, Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are trying to locate a thief and person suspected of firing the shots. According to authorities, around 3:35 a.m. on Saturday, November 7th, Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives responded to the Valero gas station at 2400 W. Sunrise Boulevard in unincorporated Central Broward. There, investigators learned that an individual walked into the store, picked up two sodas worth a total of $4 and walked out of the store without paying.

The store clerk ran outside to confront the thief. The clerk (who appears to be armed when walking out of the store in the video) told investigators that an individual in the car with the thief pointed a gun at him. At that point, the clerk, who was armed and – according to police – “in fear for his life”, fired a single shot at the vehicle.

Detectives said the vehicle is a newer model Nissan SUV.

As the driver of the car headed eastbound on Sunrise Boulevard, a passenger in the car fired several shots at the clerk. One of the shots struck an innocent bystander in the parking lot of the gas station. The bystander suffered injuries that were not life threatening, and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue transported the victim to a nearby hospital. 

Robbery detectives are asking anyone with information regarding this case or information on the identity of those involved to please contact Detective Mark Copley at 954-321-4738.
