BSO MAKES ARREST IN FATAL NORTH LAUDERDALE ROBBERY-
A 19-year-old man has been arrested in the murder of a North Lauderdale store clerk. Tyrone Fields Jr.’s arrest on July 20 came a day after Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives released surveillance video of Fields in the store.
Around 12:40 p.m. July 17, Fields entered Aunt Molly’s Food Store, 1691 S. State Road 7. He robbed and shot Ayub Ali. Tamarac Fire Rescue transported the 61-year-old to Broward Health Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Following the release of the video, BSO detectives and Broward Crime Stoppers received a number of tips.
The homicide detectives’ investigation led them to an associate of Fields’ who encouraged him to meet with law enforcement. Around 12:30 p.m. July 20, Fields turned himself in at Fort Lauderdale Police’s station. He faces one count of murder and a robbery with firearm charge.
Anyone with further information about this case is asked to contact BSO Homicide Detective James Hayes at 954-321-4231.
