: Paralyzed Woman Dies Two Years After Mother’s Day Shooting in Broward

Fort Lauderdale, Florida – A tragic incident in Broward County, Florida that occurred on Mother’s Day in 2022 has led to the death of a woman who was left paralyzed as a result of the shooting. Dru’Niyyia Griffin passed away after a valiant two-year battle for her life in long-term care, according to officials from the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

The shooting took place late at night on May 8, 2022, on Northwest 15th Court in unincorporated Central Broward, near Fort Lauderdale. Responding deputies found Griffin, then 20 years old, with multiple gunshot wounds in the driver’s seat of a black Honda Accord. Tragically, she succumbed to her injuries almost two years later.

Tragically, Griffin was not the only victim of the shooting. A man who was with her in the parked car was also struck by gunfire but was treated and later released from hospital. The pair had been sitting outside the residence of someone they were visiting when another vehicle passed by and opened fire on them multiple times.

In an effort to solve the case and bring the perpetrator to justice, homicide detectives have taken over the investigation. Surveillance video released by authorities depicted a dark SUV from which the gunfire originated. Despite their best efforts, the shooter remains at large, prompting officials to seek the public’s assistance in providing any information that could aid in resolving the case.

To incentivize cooperation, a reward of up to $5,000 has been offered for anyone who can provide valuable information leading to an arrest in the case. Citizens with relevant details are urged to contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS to assist law enforcement in their pursuit of justice.
