A Coral Springs man was arrested late Tuesday on a charge of first-degree murder after he was seen carrying a child and running from the scene of an overnight shooting.
Chase Harder, 21, surrendered late Tuesday night. Coral Springs police have not released the name of the victim because their family has not been notified.
Police issued a statement Wednesday morning offering few details about the murder. Several 911 calls came in about 8:26 p.m. Tuesday reporting shots fired at the 9200 block of Ramblewood Drive. A man later identified as Harder was seen carrying a small child over his shoulder and running from the scene into a white Mercedes, which fled the scene.
The child’s father later called 911 to say Harder had dropped off the child at his home. Harder then contacted police and turned himself in, according to the police summary of the incident.
It was not immediately clear Wednesday what Harder’s relationship was with the victim, the child or the child’s father.
