BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Boca PD) — Detectives from the Boca Raton Police Department have made an arrest in the murder of Nicholas Max Acosta. On Tuesday, December 29, 2015 at approximately 7:20pm, Boca Raton Police responded to a reported shooting at U-Park apartments at 135 NW 20th Street. Officers arrived within 3 minutes and found Acosta with at least two gunshot wounds to his torso. Acosta was transported to Delray Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
The victim’s girlfriend said that Acosta sold marijuana out of the apartment in the past. She also said that a large bag of marijuana was missing from the kitchen counter after the shooting. A check of Acosta’s cell phone shows that he had a text conversation with one of the suspects prior to the shooting, regarding a narcotics transaction. The conversation included the suspect texting Acosta that he had arrived at the apartment complex. Acosta then texted the suspect the access code for the building. Boca Raton detectives were able to trace the cell phone back to Donovan Malik Henry of Miramar. On Wednesday afternoon, Henry was arrested without incident in Miami Gardens and charged with first degree murder and robbery with a firearm.
Detectives continue to search for four additional suspects. If you have any information about this case, please call Detective Scott Hanley at 561-338-1344 or Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
