Woman shot and possibly pushed from Escalade, left on side of the road
A 30-year-old woman was shot several times before she either jumped or was pushed from a Cadillac Escalade and left on the side of the road in Pompano Beach, authorities said.
Cassandra Fair was found about 7:30 p.m. Friday in the 1400 block of Northwest 18th Drive, said Veda Coleman-Wright, a spokeswoman for the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
Fair had been the front passenger in a vehicle traveling north on Northwest 18th Drive in the vicinity west of North Andrews Avenue and north of East Atlantic Boulevard, she said.
“At some point, someone in the vehicle repeatedly shot her,” Coleman-Wright said. “Witnesses saw a Cadillac Escalade leaving the area and found the victim lying on the side of the road.”
Detectives said Fair either jumped or was pushed out of the vehicle, the sheriff’s office said.
Paramedics took Fair to Broward Health North in Deerfield Beach, where she died, Coleman-Wright said.
Fair had been living in Pompano Beach, public records show, and previously had called Texas home with addresses in Arlington, Fort Worth, Irving and Grand Prairie.
Efforts to reach Fair’s relatives on Monday were not successful.
Investigators later found a beige 2004 Cadillac Escalade that may have been involved in the incident, Coleman-Wright said. She did not disclose where the SUV was when it was located.
Investigators urge anyone with information about Fair’s death to contact homicide Detective Zachary Scott at 954-321-4162.
