    A man who robbed a Dollar General store in Pompano Beach last month got away with just $20, Broward sheriff’s deputies said.

    The robbery was reported Sept. 30 at the store at 2720 Hammondville Road.

    According to deputies, the man wandered around the store for a while before walking up to the register and asking the manager how much a drink cost.

    Deputies said the manager told him that the drink cost $1, and offered to pay for the man’s drink because he claimed that he didn’t have any money.

    But as the manager opened the register, the robber demanded that he give him $100 and insinuated that he had a gun, deputies said.

    Authorities said the robber warned the victim not to push the panic button or call for help and told the victim that he had just gotten out of jail and wanted the money.

    The manager complied and handed the man $20 from the register. As the man reached for the money, the manager realized that he was not armed and tried to grab the money back.

    Newly released surveillance video from the store shows the manager hopping over the counter and chasing the robber out of the store.

    Detectives are searching for a black man who is possibly in his 50s with short black hair and a gray beard. He is about 6 feet tall and weighs about 160 pounds.

    Anyone with information about the robber’s identity is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.

    A 15-year-old has been arrested on a charge of first-degree murder in connection to the shooting of two teens in southwest Miami-Dade County. 

    Dennis Lee Shelby Jr., of Florida City, was arrested following a double shooting Sunday night that killed Rahkeem Brown, 16, and injured Tyvontae Robinson.

    Police said the victims were found with gunshot wounds in the area of Southwest 280th Street and 141st Avenue. They were taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center, where Brown died and Robinson, 16, remains in critical condition. 

    According to an arrest report, the two friends and a third victim were walking into a complex in the area when a black 4-door Kia pulled up and someone from the rear drivers side started firing.

    Police said Brown fell to the ground and Robinson and the third person tried to hide behind mailboxes. They said Robinson was shot one time in the buttock area and the other person was not injured.

    Police said the uninjured victim later identified Shelby as the gunman. Detectives said Shelby denied having any involvement in the shooting.

    People in the community believe the shooting may have been retaliation for a shooting that happened Saturday in Florida City, which left another teenager dead and two others injured.

    Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    The American Cancer Society is revising its advice on when women should start getting mammograms and how often.

    The updated guidelines recommend annual breast cancer screenings at age 45 instead of 40 and switching to every other year at age 55.

    The update moves the society closer to guidelines from an influential task force that recommends starting routine screening at age 50. It's not a one-size-fits-all recommendation. Both groups say women's preferences for when to be scanned should be considered.

    The advice is for women at average risk of breast cancer. Doctors generally recommend more intensive screening for higher-risk women.

    The update also drops a recommendation for routine physical breast exams by doctors.

    The guidelines were published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

    Turkish Airlines is attempting to break the world record for tallest sand castle ever built.

    A team of 12 sculptors led by 7-time record holder Ted Siebert is working to construct the massive castle at Historic Virginia Key Beach Park.

    The record attempt marks the airline's inaugural service from Miami to its hub in Istanbul, which begins Sunday.

    The sand castle, which requires more than 1,800 tons of sand, is taking about three weeks to complete and is expected to be done by next Monday.

    It is expected to remain standing at the beach for at least three weeks after it is completed.

    The current world record for tallest sand castle stands at 41 feet and 3.67 inches. It was built in Brazil last November.

    The Miami-Dade Police Department is investigating the death of a Florida City man who was found dead inside his home Monday night. 

    The body of Renaldo 'Ziggy' Clayton, 32, was discovered by family inside the home in the 1600 block of Northwest 1 Avenue just before 9:40 p.m.  

    According to his family, an armed intruder was waiting for Clayton when he returned home the store. They said Clayton's 3-year-old son's mother had picked the boy up about two hours before the shooting.

    Clayton's girlfriend found his body in the kitchen with an apparent gunshot wound.

    "It's just ironic. His mom passed when he was like 7 from complications from breast cancer. Now he's 32 and he's left a 3-year-old son," Clayton's aunt, Brenda Milton, said. "The violence has to stop. It has to stop."

    Clayton worked for Florida City Parks and Recreation and was planning on driving trucks for the county.

    Clayton's brother told Local 10 News that he believes the motive for the shooting was robbery.

    Police are investigating after about 17 vehicles were broken into overnight in a northeast Miami-Dade community.

    The incidents were reported early Tuesday at the North Point Townhomes at Northeast 210th Terrace.

    "I guess they park over there, they break the windows, and the entrance is right here so they're gone right away," Mario Marrero, who lives in the neighborhood, said.

    Another resident, Juana Garcia, said she left to go to work and saw that the window on the passenger side of her car was smashed.

    Although Garcia said she had some bags in her car, nothing was stolen.

    "I'm just scared. This has never happened before," she said.

    The cars that were broken into were all parked in a row toward the front of the complex.

    Miami-Dade police detectives spoke to residents and swiped vehicles for fingerprints.

    "I don't know if the fact we don't have any gates here has anything to do with it, because the truth is this is a quiet neighborhood," Marrero said.

    Newly released video shows an attack on a Miami-Dade police officer at a gas station in 2013 that led the officer to fatally shoot the suspect.

    The incident was reported in December 2013 at a Shell gas station at 2501 NW 42nd Ave.

    Detectives said Officer Mario Gutierrez was patrolling near Miami International Airport when he saw a suspicious man, identified as Dominique Jean, 51.

    Surveillance video from the gas station shows Jean lifting the cap off an underground gas tank and setting fire to newspapers in an effort to set the gas station on fire.

    The video shows Gutierrez approaching Jean and pressing the gas station's emergency shut-off button. Gutierrez was then stabbed repeatedly with a knife and a large screwdriver.

    Although seriously injured, Gutierrez was able to grab his gun and shoot Jean.

    Police said Gutierrez tried radioing for help four times, but his radio didn't work properly. He suffered wounds to his arm, leg, back and chest. Jean also tried to bite off Gutierrez's thumb, police said.

    Jean, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was later found to be in possession of box cutters, in addition to the knife and screwdriver with which he attacked the officer.

    Gutierrez was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he underwent several surgical procedures.

    Gutierrez has worked for the department for about 23 years and was assigned to the Motors Unit at the Airport District at the time of the attack.

    Florida Highway Patrol troopers are investigating a suspected case of road rage involving a Broward County corrections officer.

    Troopers say a driver claims he saw John Charles Dlugos, 46, brandish a gun at him during a spat they were having while driving in separate cars along the Florida Turnpike Sunday night in Orange County. Dlugos is a lieutenant at the Broward County corrections department.

    The driver told investigators Dlugos had tailgated him at one point, and when he changed lanes, the two exchanged hand gestures.

    It was at that point, the driver says, that Dlugos showed him a gun. The driver pulled off to the Turkey Lake Service Plaza and called police.

    Dlugos was apprehended a short time later while driving south toward Broward County.

    According to the agency's official website, Dlugos began working with the Broward Sheriff's Office in 1993 as a detention deputy. He was promoted to sergeant in 2000 and was assigned to the Military Training Unit.

    Dlugos received the Outstanding Unit Award while assigned to Central Intake and a Grand Cordon Unit awards while assigned to the Military Training Unit, according to his bio on the site.

    He served four years in the U.S. Air Force and is currently a Team Commander for the Emergency Response Team.

    The Broward County Sheriff's Office told Local 10 News affiliate WKMG that Dlugos had been suspended with pay until the case is completed.

    A Jacksonville family is having a hard time coming to terms with a teenager’s death after the driver police said hit and killed him posted a photo of the teen's body to Twitter.

    Trevius Williams, 16, was hit crossing a road Sunday night, police said. A photo the driver took of Trevius' body and posted to social media went viral before it was eventually taken down.

    In her mother’s living room, surrounded by family, Connie Coles, Trevius' mother, described the moment she came upon the scene of her son’s death.

    “We turned,” Coles told Local 10 News affiliate WJXT. “I saw the most horrible sight of my life -- the lights, the flashing lights, the sirens, the tape roped off, the glass in the road.”

    Trevius was hit crossing the street to get to a convenience store. His mother said it should not have played out the way it did.

    She described Trevius as a generous, loving person who would do anything for his family. She said the driver's photo of her son lying dead in the road turned much of her sadness into anger.

    “I'm mad. I'm angry,” Coles said. “A part of me actually feels sympathy for him -- that he could be so heartless, that he could be such a cold-hearted person.”

    Coles, a mother of three, said she feels the driver’s actions after police said he hit and killed her youngest son are inexcusable.

    “He will never grow up to get married,” Coles said of Trevius. “He won't go to college. He'll never be able to have kids, and you have the audacity to get out of your car and take a picture.”

    Police said Trevius was not in a crosswalk when he was hit, and no charges have been filed against the driver, who stayed at the scene and cooperated with police. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said the driver did not break the law by posting the photo to social media.

    Coles said she doesn’t accept that.

    “I want charges against him,” Coles said. “I want his license to be taken and I think he should do some jail time. And I'm not going to stop until I get justice.” Coles' god-sister, Penny Hayes, who lived with Coles and Trevius, said she still can't believe the teen is gone.

    "I miss him so much," Hayes said. "It's just empty without him. It's like something just -- I've just got a big ol' hole in my heart."

    Hayes said Trevius loved to be outside and be with his family.

    "He was so close to his mom," Hayes said. "He was the baby, and I just don't understand why they would do that."

    Hayes said Trevius borrowed money from her Sunday night to walk to the convenience store just yards away.

    "I feel like it was my fault, because I shouldn't have given him that dollar," Hayes said. "I feel like it was my fault. I shouldn't have given him that dollar. He would've been here."

    Trevius' relatives said they do not have the financial means to give him a proper burial. Donations to help the family can be made to a memorial fund at any Vystar Credit Union location.

    The family will hold a vigil for Trevius at 7 p.m. Friday at the spot on Lem Turner where the teen was killed.

    A surfer who was bitten on his left foot by a shark in Deerfield Beach Monday said he plans to get back in the water soon.

    Peter Kirn, 21, was in good spirits Tuesday after getting 50 stitches on his foot.

    According to Kirn, he was surfing about 50 yards offshore with his friends when he was attacked by a 5-foot spinner shark. He said he saw the whole thing happen in the water and then adrenaline kicked in.

    "I was lying down on my board…I was paddling for a wave or something, and so I was lying on my board paddling and so my feet were hanging off and had just come out of the water. So he must have seem them and just jumped right out at them and grabbed them," Kirn said.

    Kirn, who was surfing just north of the pier, swan to shore and went to a lifeguard tower for help. He was taken to Broward Health North, where he is continuing to recover.

    "I never thought I'd get bitten by a shark, but I guess yesterday was my day," Kirn said. "Thank God it was just my foot."

    Kirn is on antibiotics and said he is waiting for a plastic surgeon to examine his foot.

    "The skin was ragged. He lost some skin," Dr. Nigel Soson said.

    "With spinner sharks, it's interesting," director of emergency services Dr. Evan Boyar said. "You know, spinners typically are not aggressive with humans."

    Kirn said there was bait fish in the rough surf. Authorities issued a red flag warning in the area where he was attacked.

    A Palm Beach Gardens officer shot and killed 31-year-old Corey Jones, and now his family and friends are demanding justice, while investigators try to figure out what happened and why.

    "Just consider your grandchild, if it would have happened to you," Sylvester Banks, Sr. said.

    Tuesday night, Banks asked others to put themselves in his family's shoes.

    "You hear that your grandson is dead," Banks said. "Been shot to death by the people who [are] supposed to protect you."

    Family members said Jones was driving home early Sunday morning when his car broke down on Interstate 95 near PGA Boulevard. Palm Beach Gardens police said  Officer Nouman Raja was working an undercover detail in the area and stopped to investigate what he thought was an abandoned car.

    "As the officer exited his vehicle he was suddenly confronted by an armed subject," Chief Stephen Stepp of Palm Beach Gardens Police said. "As a result of the confrontation, the officer discharged his firearm, resulting in the death of Mr. Corey Jones."

    High-powered civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, who is representing Jones' family, appeared on CNN's morning show Wednesday attacking the officer's actions.

    "Corey Jones was on the side of the road at 3 a.m. waiting for a tow truck, and what he needed from police was a helping hand and all he got was bullets," Crump said. "He doesn't know if this is a police officer or not . His family believes he went to his grave not knowing who this person was. We don't know home many times he was shot. "

    Jones' loved ones gathered Monday night at the Bible Church of God in Boynton Beach, where Jones played the drums in a church band. His grandfather also serves as a bishop at the church. They plan to hold another prayer service Wednesday evening.

    Friends said Jones was heading back from playing a gig when he had car trouble and was waiting on a tow truck.

    Jones' friend, Mathew Huntsberger said he went to help him with his stalled out car. After trying to fix the car themselves, and even calling other services to assist, Huntsberger said he left. Sometime later, Officer Raja pulled up in an unmarked car and wearing plain clothes.

    "Last time I saw him, I gave him a high-five and said 'Get home safe,'" Huntsberger said. "I found out Monday morning all that stuff went down and I was just completely shocked. I’d never seen him even raise his voice, let alone you know the accusations the cops are saying. I can’t even comprehend that that would be possible."

    Police said investigators found a gun at the scene and a box for the gun in the car.

    "The handgun was found on the ground, outside the vehicle," Stepp said. "Palm Beach County Sheriff's detectives have located paperwork showing Mr. Jones purchased the handgun three days before the officer-involved shooting."

    Jones' grandfather, along with Huntsberger said they didn't know he owned a gun.

    Jones worked as an inspector for the Delray Housing Authority, and those who knew him described him as a calm person and not confrontational.

    "He was one of those people that when you met him, you were instantly comfortable him," Huntsberger said.

    Zack Bates, who knew Jones for four years, said he's in shock and that Jones never got mad about anything and was "level-headed."

    "It's completely out of character," Bates said. "I would never expect anything like what I've heard so far to be involved one bit with Corey Jones."

    A spokeswoman for Gov. Rick Scott's office said the governor has spoken with FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen, Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw and State Attorney Dave Aronberg to "offer the assistance of FDLE in the two ongoing investigations by the State Attorney's Office and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office."
