Attempted murder suspect arrested in Pompano Beach, Georgia

Pompano Beach, Florida. — Authorities arrested a suspected murder attempt from South Florida on Wednesday after a brief pursuit by law enforcement officers in Clayton County, Georgia, the Broward Sheriff’s Office confirmed Friday.

Lawmakers said an arrest warrant had been issued for 27-year-old Otis Washington after a man was found shot dead in Pompano Beach last December.

At approximately 3:25 a.m. on December 31, 2021, BSO lawmakers were notified of a ShotSpotter alert near the 1400 block of Northwest 31st Avenue in Pompano Beach. When units responded to investigate, they found a man who had been shot.

Deputies immediately began lifesaving operations until the Pompano Beach Fire Department arrived. Rescuers then took the injured man to a local hospital for treatment.

According to investigators, a verbal argument broke out between several people before the shooting.

Through investigative methods, detectives said Washington was identified as the shooter.

Washington was taken into custody in Clayton County Wednesday night.

He is expected to be extradited to Broward County to face a charge of attempted first-degree murder.
