BROWARD COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A teen is now in police custody — charged with a drive-by shooting in North Broward County that left two people dead. We first reported on the shootings here.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office released this statement to BocaNewsNow.com mid-morning Tuesday:
“A combination of dedicated detective work and tips from the public led to the identification of one of the dangerous subjects involved in the double homicide that occurred outside of a Pompano Beach convenience store in February.
After reviewing evidence in the case and receiving crucial tips from Crime Stoppers, Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives said Damian Wastene Charmant, 18, was identified as one of the shooters. Charmant is currently in custody on unrelated charges, and he now faces additional charges that include two counts of first-degree murder and three counts of first-degree attempted murder with a firearm.
According to investigators, at approximately 9:01 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26, BSO deputies responded to a shooting call at a convenience store located at 401 N.W. 27th Avenue in Pompano Beach. When deputies arrived, they located five people suffering from gunshot wounds. Pompano Beach Fire Rescue also responded and transported the victims to Broward Health North. An adult male victim, 35-year-old Dayvon Johnson, and the adult female victim, 31-year-old Delana James, were pronounced deceased at the hospital. The remaining three victims sustained injuries that were not life threatening.
Homicide detectives said the remaining subjects involved in the fatal shootings are considered armed and dangerous.
