A man is charged with first-degree murder after a shooting in a Tamarac warehouse complex Tuesday afternoon that killed another man, deputies said.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office identified him Wednesday as Damion Dawkins, 37.

The shooting happened shortly before 2 p.m. near the 6000 block of Nob Hill Road, Claudinne Caro, a spokesperson for the Broward Sheriff’s Office, said in an email.

A warehouse complex for Sonny’s Carwash Controls, a company that sells car wash parts, is located at the same address.

Deputies found an adult man who had been shot, and Tamarac Fire Rescue paramedics took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Caro said.

His family has invoked Marsy’s Law, a voter-approved amendment that allows crime victims to shield their names and personal information from the public.

Deputies found Dawkins after setting up a perimeter and took him into custody. He remains in the Broward Main Jail pending a bond hearing.

The Sheriff’s Office has not released additional details. Homicide Unit detectives are investigating, Caro said.
