A parked car, a shooting in the early morning hours: The death of Michael Frank, a 22-year-old from Lighthouse Point, sounded like it was drug-related, and that's what Broward Sheriff's Office detectives are reporting, now that they've arrested Filipe Cruz, the man they believe killed Frank around 2 a.m. Thursday. From the BSO release:
The victim, Michael Frank, had gone to the area to purchase cocaine from Cruz. After Frank's friend got the drugs, the friend punched Cruz in the face and attempted to flee the area. As he tried to get away Cruz approached the car and shot Frank, who was sitting in the front passenger seat.
