Description of Incident:
A verbal altercation erupted into gunfire, injuring four men, one critically, Saturday in Lauderdale Lakes.
Just before 4 p.m., Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue units were dispatched to Whispering Palms Apartments at 4500 NW 36 St. for a report of several people shot. First arriving units were directed to apartment 205 where they found two men, a man and his stepson, shot. Gilespie Isaacs, 50, and his stepson Neville Lynch, 25, sustained gunshot wounds following an altercation that became violent. Witnesses told BSO detectives that an ongoing verbal argument between two men, Lynch and David Rose, 22, intensified with threats of physical violence. During the verbal argument, Lynch, his stepfather and several associates were standing on the balcony of the apartment mincing words with David Rose and his associates on the ground. One of Lynch’s unnamed associates came downstairs from the balcony and got into a physical altercation with David Rose. Lynch brandished a handgun from the balcony and began shooting at Rose. Rose was struck in the shoulder. Mark Rose, 25, returned fire from the ground striking Lynch and Isaacs. Another man, 25-year-old Kevin Dobson, was also struck by gunfire standing on the balcony but he left the scene before deputies arrived.
Lynch was airlifted by BSO Air Rescue to Broward Health Medical Center (BHMC) and at last report remains in critical condition. Isaacs was transported by Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue to BHMC where he was treated and released for his injuries. The wounded Rose was driven by a friend to nearby Florida Medical Center where he was treated and released.
BSO detectives interviewed the subjects and over a dozen witnesses well into Sunday and preliminarily determined Rose’s actions were justifiable. He possesses a license to carry a concealed weapon. However, Rose was arrested on an outstanding, unrelated civil writ. The investigation is ongoing and, on completion, will likely go to the State Attorney’s Office for review.
