Twin brothers wanted in connection with Lauderhill Mall melee last month


Lauderhill police are searching for twin brothers they believe are responsible for starting a disturbance at a Broward mall in June.

Officers were called to the Lauderhill Mall on June 25 after a large crowd of teenagers began fighting.

Police believe a posting on a social media website drew at least 200 teenagers to the Lauderhill Mall to participate in the fight.

They have identified twin brothers, Michael and Matthew Russo, as possible suspects in creating the melee.

Two juveniles were arrested at the time of the fight.

One person was injured during the brawl and treated at a hospital with minor injuries.

In cell phone video obtained by CBS4 News, a group of teens are visible gathering near the mall’s entrance.

As the crowd pushed inside, someone used a large traffic cone as a weapon.
