Coral Springs Police are investigating the death of a 48 year-old Coral Springs resident that occurred early this morning.
At approximately 4:40am there was an altercation between two males in the parking lot of the 4200 block of Riverside Dr. As the victim, Patrick Dameus, 48 of Coral Springs was standing on the sidewalk, the suspect Emmanuel Carry, 12/25/65 of Coral Springs intentionally struck him several times with his vehicle resulting in Patrick being trapped under the car. Emmanuel dragged Patrick for approximately 2.5 miles before he became dislodged on State Road 7 just south Wiles Road.
Patrick Demeus was pronounced dead at the scene. Probable cause does exist for the arrest of Emmanuel Carry for First Degree Murder.
Emmanuel was last seen driving a 2005 green/grey Honda Element with Florida tag C59-7GN. He is considered to be armed and dangerous because he was seen in the possession of a machete at the time of the incident. Emmanuel is considered to be a flight risk due to his frequent visitations to Haiti.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477(TIPS) or Detective Ryan Gallagher of the Coral Springs Police Department at 954-346-1214.
