Shots Fired At Lauderdale Lakes Walmart, Good Samaritan Dies

LAUDERDALE LAKES, FL (Boca Post) (Copyright © 2023) — A dispute between two Walmart employees led to a man being shot and killed at the Lauderdale Lakes store.

According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, multiple Broward Sheriff’s Office units arrested the suspect wanted for a fatal shooting inside a Lauderdale Lakes Walmart store on Tuesday afternoon.

According to BSO Homicide Unit detectives, shortly after 2 p.m., Broward County Regional Communications received a call reporting a shooting inside Walmart, located at 3001 N. State Road 7 in Lauderdale Lakes. BSO district deputies and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue responded. On scene, deputies located an adult male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Paramedics airlifted the victim to Broward Health Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased.

The preliminary investigation has revealed that on Tuesday afternoon, Tironie Shavar Sterling arrived at Walmart, where he works but was off, to meet with a female employee. Once there, Sterling and the female employee became involved in an argument which escalated to a physical encounter. During the physical encounter, Sterling dropped a firearm on the floor and attempted to steal the female’s cell phone. As the confrontation escalated further, an adult male customer stepped in, attempting to assist the female. At that time, Sterling and the customer became involved in a physical altercation. During that altercation, Sterling picked up his gun and shot the good Samaritan multiple times. Sterling then fled the location.

Using investigative means, Sterling was identified as a suspect. Hours later, BSO’s SWAT, Fugitive, and V.I.P.E.R. (Violence Intervention Proactive Enforcement Response) units arrested Sterling. Sterling was arrested on charges of first-degree murder and armed robbery by sudden snatching. He was subsequently transported to the Broward County Main Jail.
