Three individuals, namely Paul Olivier, Daequan Griffin and a 17 year old male, have been arrested by detectives from the Broward Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit in partnership with the Miami Police Department. They are being charged in connection with a shooting incident that took place during an attempted robbery in Oakland Park. This unfortunate event happened around 8 p.m. On Thursday, September 14th, near the 3000 block of West Oakland Park Boulevard.
According to investigators, deputies from the BSO Oakland Park District were present in the area responding to a disturbance call at a local flea market. The call was related to a music video shoot. While they were on site, deputies heard multiple gunshots coming from a nearby gas station that were unrelated to the music video. The deputies promptly reacted by heading towards the scene and discovered two individuals who had sustained gunshot wounds.
The Oakland Park Fire Rescue also arrived at the scene and unfortunately pronounced one of the victims deceased on site. The other victim received medical attention from paramedics and was transported to a nearby hospital.
Witnesses at the scene informed investigators that prior to the shooting, several individuals approached the victims who eventually became targets of this tragic incident. These individuals then fled from the scene in a dark colored vehicle.
During their investigation into this incident, detectives uncovered that it occurred during an attempted robbery targeting these victims specifically for their necklace and Rolex watch.
On Friday, September 22nd, the authorities from Broward County Sheriff’s Office (BSO) made public the information about the victim who had passed away. They also issued a Broward County Crime Stoppers flyer offering a reward of up to $5,000 for any information that could lead to an arrest in this case. Subsequently, on October 3rd, investigators released surveillance footage of a vehicle believed to be connected to the attempted robbery that resulted in a shooting.
After employing various investigative methods, detectives successfully identified Olivier (22 years old), Griffin (also 22 years old) and an unnamed 17 year old male as the suspects involved. As a result, arrest warrants were promptly issued.
According to investigators, Griffin and the 17 year old were already arrested by Miami Police in September on unrelated charges related to an armed robbery incident that occurred earlier this year in Miami. Now they are facing additional charges of first degree murder in connection with the case in Oakland Park.
On Friday, November 3rd, BSO investigators apprehended Olivier at his residence in Lauderdale Lakes based on their warrant. He is now facing one count of first degree murder and two counts of probation violation. There may be additional charges pending against him.
