Death – 2 shot, 1 killed outside Fort Lauderdale FL lounge, cops say

Death – Obituary

A 37-year-old Pompano Beach man died after being shot in the parking lot of a bar before sunrise Sunday, Fort Lauderdale police say.

Bernie Jean’s death appears to be a manifestation of neighbors’ reported concerns about gun violence and criminal activity at the Take 1 Lounge, 801 Northeast 62nd St.

Fort Lauderdale police say they were answering reports of a shooting Sunday just before 6 a.m. and found Jean in the parking lot, shot by someone with whom he’d been having an argument. Another person, who had been shot by a stray bullet, was being taken to Broward Health with what were called non-life threatening injuries.

No information on the shooter has been released.

Police are asking anyone with cellphone video of the shooting of Jean share it with them at the police evidence submission portal. Witnesses can call homicide detectives at 954-828-6561 or, to remain anonymous, Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477 (TIPS) or the crime stoppers website.

Back in May, some of Take 1’s residential neighbors expressed concerns about gun violence outside the bar to WPLG-Channel 10. One Cypress Creek Mobile Home Country Club resident said she moved her mattress to the floor after stray bullets penetrated her bedroom.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
