Florida police arrest suspected gunman in murder of Jamaican caught on video

He has been identified as Trace O’Brian Walker.

Walker was allegedly the gunman caught on video pumping 13 bullets into the upper body of 34-year-old Gary Wallock on January 16 outside the Lobster and Seafood Warehouse, 1854 NW 38 Avenue, Lauderhill.

Wallock’s female companion, who was with him at the time of the murder, managed top escape although the suspect aimed his handgun and fired two shots in her direction as she scampered to safety.

Walker was arrested in Palm Beach County without incident by the Lauderhill Police Department with the assistance of the West Palm Beach Police Department, Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office and the US Marshalls Service.

Walker is in custody at the Broward Main County Jail, being held without bond.

The Lauderhill Police say they have established no motive for the murder but, word on the ground in Walker's hometown of Flankers in Montego Bay, Jamaica, the incident is linked to the ongoing lotto scam.
