A Fort Lauderdale man was shot in daylight outside his home in front of his neighbors as he called out for help, police said Thursday.
The suspect is still on the run.
Investigators released a sketch of the suspect in the murder of Inson Joseph, 26, of Fort Lauderdale.
The shooting occurred about 5:30 p.m. Aug. 9 in front of Joseph’s home at 1304 NE Second Ave., Fort Lauderdale Police Department spokeswoman DeAnna Greenlaw said.
Neighbors heard gunshots coming from Joseph’s house. Moments later Joseph walked out into the roadway and asked neighbors to call 911. The suspect came out of the house, pulled a gun from his waistband and shot Joseph again, Greenlaw said.
Investigators have not been able to collect much information from witnesses. They suspect that neighbors are worried about crossing a man who killed someone in daylight, she said.
"They are probably afraid of retaliation," Greenlaw said.
Police described the suspect as black, in his 20s about five feet nine inches, thin build with short cornrows and a low beard. He was last seen wearing a dark baggy long sleeve top and cargo shorts.
Detectives are urging anyone with further information regarding this incident to call Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477. All calls are kept anonymous.
Authorities will pay up to $3,000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.
