Deputies: Debt dis­pute led to slay­ings

Orlando Sentinel - - LOCAL & STATE -

Thursday, Jan­uary 9, 2020 while Broady was taken to Ad­ven­tHealth Or­lando, where he died.

Se­cu­rity mem­bers told deputies par­ty­go­ers said a man known as “In­dian,” later iden­ti­fied as Newell, was the shooter, the af­fi­davit writ­ten by De­tec­tive Kevin Wil­son said.

Deputies learned Newell was mad be­cause Broady ap­par­ently owed him $15,000, ac­cord­ing to the af­fi­davit. They are both club pro­mot­ers, al­though nei­ther were work­ing the event on New Year’s.

The se­cu­rity team also told deputies Newell was kicked out of the club about four months ago and then fired sev­eral shots in the park­ing lot be­cause he was up­set Broady was in­side spend­ing money in­stead of pay­ing him back, Wil­son wrote.

The in­ci­dent was never re­ported to law en­force­ment, the af­fi­davit said.

Sur­veil­lance video on the night of the shoot­ing showed Newell go­ing in­side the club around 2 a.m. and come out at 4:30 a.m. to go to his truck, only to go back in­side about a minute later, Wil­son wrote. The shoot­ing hap­pened a few sec­onds later and Newell ran out with every­one else and drove away in his truck, ac­cord­ing to Wil­son.

Deputies on Wednesday searched his home in the 2100 block of Torch­wood Drive, where they found two firearms, in­clud­ing one with the same cal­iber of bul­let that was used in the shoot­ing, WIl­son said. Deputies also col­lected clothes that looked sim­i­lar to what he was wear­ing that night.

Newell told de­tec­tives he was at the club but was out­side at the time of the shoot­ing.

Records show Florida High­way Pa­trol troop­ers in 2012 pulled Newell over on State Road 408, find­ing $14,000 in cash and a Gucci suit­case that smelled like mar­i­juana. The case was later dropped.

Newell is at the Orange County Jail without bond.
