Convenience Store Shooting Suspect Denied Bond
South Florida Crime
LAUDERHILL (CBSMiami) – The man suspected in a July convenience store shooting will not be getting out of jail anytime soon.
Gevaenydo K. McKenzie surrendered at the Fort Lauderdale Police Department Wednesday night where he was charged with attempted murder. On Thursday morning he was denied bond in court.
The clerk, 21-year old Ramzi Fogahaa, survived the attack but could be paralyzed because one of the bullets lodged in his spine. He was listed in critical condition after the shooting.
The attack happened on July 31 at the U-Save convenience store at 4039 NW 19th Street in Lauderhill about 10 p.m.
Witnesses said the shooter was a regular customer who got upset after being told he could not cut in front of other people waiting in line.
The entire crime was captured on store surveillance video.
Store co-owner Moe Nasser, who witnessed the shooting, said when the customer got upset, Fogahaa pulled out a bat from behind the counter. Nasser said the customer then came back with a gun and fired five shots.
Two of the bullets lodged in the store’s walls. Nasser said Foqahaa was hit in the stomach and the shoulder.
The clerk remains hospitalized.
