Suspect In Shooting At Lauderhill U-Save Store Ordered To Be Held Without Bond

Gevaenydd K. McKenzie, 40, has been ordered to be held without bond Thursday over charges of attempted murder after turning himself in to police over the July 31 shooting at the U-Save convenience store in Lauderhill.

The victim, 21-year-old store employee Ramzi Foqahaa, has been partially paralyzed from his injuries sustained in the shooting.

According to police, surveillance video from the store show a man, believed to be McKenzie, entering the store and getting a gallon of juice then skipping people in line. That's when Foqahaa told him to get in line and an argument erupted and ending with the man leaving the store. About 13 minutes later a man with a mask entered the store and opened fire, hitting Foqahaa.

Foqahaa remains hospitalized at the Broward General Medical Center in serious condition and is now paralyzed below the waist.

The judge, in the hearing, said there was probable cause linking McKenzie to the crime when he ordered him held without bond.
