Man at domino game shot and killed in Pompano Beach


Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are investigating a multiple shooting at a domino game that left one man dead and three others wounded.

BSO said the incident began at 12:56 a.m. Sunday when four gunmen apparently tried to rob the group of men playing dominoes outside a Pompano Beach home on the 1600 block of Northwest Seventh Lane.

Deputies are still unsure of what sparked the gunfire, but a 23-year-old was shot and killed at the home. He has been identified as Joshua Childs.

The other victims are Alphonso Wright, 54, and Christopher Singleton, 25, who were wounded and taken by fire rescue to Broward Health North. The fourth victim, Rashaad Payne, 23, left the scene after the shooting and was driven by a relative to the same hospital.

BSO homicide detectives are looking for four unidentified armed suspects.

Anyone with information about the case should call Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
