The Broward Sheriff's Office says it's arrested three men connected to last week's shooting at Fort Lauderdale's Club BAM that left one Pompano Beach man dead.
According to a BSO report, homicide detectives arrested Awince Lasseur, 27, Peudritto Joseph, 32, and Dieuphen Joseph, 27 on attempted-murder charges for "their role in the events that led to the death of Joshua Rogers."
On Wednesday, November 25, a BSO deputy patrolling the area of Club BAM, located in the 2800 block of West Broward Boulevard, heard gunshots go off around 4:20 a.m.
When the officer pulled into the club's parking lot, patrons were seen scattering and running to safety. One man, Rogers, was found lying motionless on the ground.
Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue was called and pronounced Rogers, 27, dead at the scene, according to a BSO report.
According to the Sun Sentinel, Lasseur has a history of convictions, including cocaine charges, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and traffic infractions. Peudritto Joseph, meanwhile, has been convicted of cocaine charges, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and attempting to obstruct a crime investigation.
According to BSO, the three men were arrested in connection with the Club BAM shootings on separate days in different cities. Lasseur was arrested Saturday in Plantation, while Peudritto Joseph was arrested in Jacksonville on Sunday. Dieuphen Joseph was arrested Monday in Pompano Beach. All three were arrested without incident.
Even with the arrests, BSO is still not closing the case.
"BSO homicide continue their investigation," sheriff's spokesperson Keyla Concepcion says.
BSO ads that anyone with information on the shooting that night is asked to contact BSO Homicide Detective John Curcio at 954-321-4210 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
A reward of up to $3,000 is available for information leading to an arrest.
