Motorcyclist dies after shooting in Fort Lauderdale; 1 in custody

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - A man has died at the hospital after being shot at a Fort Lauderdale intersection while on a motorcycle.

Fort Lauderdale Police were called to the scene along the 6200 block of Northwest Ninth Avenue near Powerline Road, just after 9 p.m., Thursday.

According to police, the victim, later identified as Cerrone Alonso, was pronounced dead at the hospital after he suffered at least one gunshot wound.

Investigators said the 41-year-old was stopped at a red light on his motorcycle at the time of the shooting.

7News cameras captured the downed motorcycle at the intersection of Cypress Creek Road and Powerline Road.

“It’s terrible, you know what I mean? He’s just driving down the street,” said Stacy Young, a resident in the area.  “What could two people possibly be thinking?”

A witness told 7News she was working down the block at a McDonald’s and said she could hear an argument.

“The guy that was on the motorcycle said two words to the guy in the car,” witness Tracy Davis said.

She said could clearly hear someone saying, “Go ahead and do it.”

After she heard that, the witness said she heard four gunshots, and the man on the motorcycle was down on the ground.

“It was totally quiet,” said Davis. “Everybody was at a stoplight. Well, the guy that was on the motorcycle said two words to the car. That four seconds, that guy had enough time to grab his gun and shoot him four times. It was pop, pop, pop, four times, and that was it, and then he shot him four times. ”

The victim was transported to an area hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Police said the suspect, later identified as 29-year-old Harrison Braga DaCosta, was taken into custody at a different location.

DaCosta remains at the Broward County Jail where he’s being held on a second-degree murder charge without bond.

The cause of the shooting remains under investigation.
