Lauderdale Lakes, Florida – Detectives from the Broward Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit have arrested one individual in connection with a fatal shooting that took place in Lauderdale Lakes in December and are on the lookout for the shooter.

On March 13, an arrest warrant was issued for the 32-year-old Hollywood resident, Freddie Miller, who was located and arrested in Tampa on March 18. Miller is charged with second-degree murder using a firearm and resisting arrest without violence.
