OAKLAND PARK, Fla. (TND) — A music video shoot led authorities to an attempted armed robbery that turned deadly and eventually, three people were arrested.
The crime took place two months ago, on the evening of Sept. 14.
Sheriff’s deputies near Fort Lauderdale got called to a disturbance at a flea market that was related to a music video shoot.
While there, they “heard multiple gunshots coming from a nearby gas station, unrelated to the music video.“
The deputies raced there and found two gunshot victims. Anthony Dennis was pronounced dead at the scene and the other, whose name has not been released, survived.
Investigators were told the shooting happened during an attempted robbery, the culprits wanted the victims’ necklace and Rolex watch, and the people responsible drove away in a dark-colored vehicle.
In the meantime, authorities released a picture of the victim on a wanted poster and then surveillance video of the car believed to have been involved.
That helped them identify and get arrest warrants for 22-year-old Paul Olivier, 22-year-old Daequan Griffin, and a 17-year-old boy.
It turned out, police in Miami had already arrested Griffin and the boy in September on unrelated warrants from an armed robbery earlier in the year. They’re now charged with first-degree murder in Oakland Park.
Finally, investigators arrested Olivier at his home for one count of first-degree murder and two counts of probation violation, and they say additional charges are pending.
