PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Broward Sheriff's Office detectives have made an arrest in the October shooting of a man near a bus stop in Pembroke Park.

Stanley Rivers, 24, of Miramar, was arrested Wednesday in connection to the fatal shooting of Luis Rodriguez, 58, of West Park. Rivers faces one count of first-degree murder.

BSO spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion said Rivers shot Rodriguez after an altercation at a bus stop in the 5400 block of West Hallandale Beach Boulevard.

Concepcion said although the shooter got away on a bicycle, forensic evidence left at the scene led detectives to Rivers. She said Rivers isn't cooperating with investigators, so a motive for the shooting remains unclear.

Anyone who may have witnessed the shooting is asked to contact the BSO at 954-321-4210 or call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
