LAUDERHILL, FLA. (WSVN) - Police have revealed the three people found dead inside a Lauderhill home just over a week ago were murdered.
A homicide investigation is currently underway concerning the incident that took place inside a home at 3650 N.W. 3rd St., on Sept. 5. Police said the subject or subjects specifically targeted this residence and fatally shot 42-year-old Dwight Brown, his son, 21-year-old Denzell Brown, and 50-year-old Lisa Foreman.
“Our victims were specifically targeted. We believe that they were executed, shot multiple times,” said Lauderhill Police Lt. Gregory Solowsky.
Investigators said, in addition to being shot, one of the victims was tied up.
Because the victims were specifically targeted, police don’t believe there is a larger threat to the community.
Police described the victims as “long-standing residents of this neighborhood with deep roots into the community,” and they urged residents to come forward with any information that could shed some light as to the cause of the homicide.
“We know, based on the layout of the crime scene and what specifically was inside, somebody in this neighborhood must have known what was going on,” said Solowsky.
Shortly after the shooting, Denzell Brown’s girlfriend, Cynlita Grace, told 7News she was stunned. “This is a big surprise, a big surprise for everybody,” she said. “Nobody expects for that to happen to anybody that they’re close to.”
Police said they need someone who knows the details of what happened to step up, so they can put the killer or killers behind bars. “We are now asking and tasking our community to give us as much information as to what may have led up to this horrible, horrible incident,” said Solowsky.
If you have any information that could help investigators, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.
