Broward Sheriff’s Office Robbery Unit detectives say two individuals have been arrested for a robbery and shooting that occurred in North Lauderdale earlier this week.
According to investigators, around 3:10 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 24, Broward County Regional Communications received reports of a shooting in the 4000 block of Bailey Road in North Lauderdale.

Lys was arrested on Wednesday, Jan. 25, and is currently being held in jail in Palm Beach County.
On Jan. 25, a Broward County judge signed BSO’s arrest warrant for Daniel Gray. On Jan. 26, BSO’s V.I.P.E.R.
