DAVIE, FL – Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) homicide detectives have obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect they believe is responsible for the murder of a man on Interstate 595 last month, and detectives are asking the public to provide information that might lead to his capture.

Detectives say Marcus Ramone Cooper Jr., 17, of Miramar, was riding in a car with Tyron Arthus, 24, of Lauderdale Lakes, on I-595 eastbound near Hiatus Road sometime before 1:30 a.m. on October 8. For reasons that remain under investigation, Cooper ordered Arthus out of the vehicle and shot him multiple times, killing him. 

Around 1:28 a.m., the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) responded to a report of a person lying on the shoulder of the eastbound lanes of I-595, and Davie Fire Rescue responded and pronounced Arthus deceased on scene. FHP requested assistance from BSO’s Homicide and Crime Scene units to investigate the case.
