HALLANDALE BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Police have arrested a suspect in the double shooting that left a Hallandale Beach woman dead and a man injured, early Wednesday morning.

According to Hallandale Beach Police, at around 2 a.m., Thursday, 29-year-old Eddie Sabastain Mosley was taken into custody and charged with the murder of 24-year-old Marlena Turnquest. He is expected to appear in bond court sometime Thursday afternoon.

Mosley is accused of fatally shooting Turnquest and shooting another person outside of a home located near the 600 block of Southwest Fourth Street, just after Midnight, Wednesday. According to authorities, the shooting happened outside of Turnquest’s home, where she lived with her grandmother.
