Two weeks after a suit-wearing man pulled a gun out of briefcase and shot Tobias Barfield of Dania Beach, "Dapper Dan" is in police custody. The Broward Sheriff's Office is reporting that the suspect, John Roger Jenkins, turned himself in this morning. Here's the release.
Investigators have not yet identified a motive in the shooting, and that, of course, is the $64,000 question. We've been fascinated by this strange case since it first broke two weeks ago. The suit, the gun, the nice car, and the way the shooter knocked on the door, identified the target, then pulled the trigger: It was either a hitman's job or a guy who's damned good at impersonating one.
