POMPANO BEACH – Albert B. Stanley, 19, has surrendered to authorities in the stray bullet shooting of a Pompano Beach mother of four.
Stanley is believed to be the gunman who fired an assault rifle into a crowd during street fight on the evening of Tuesday, Aug. 24. It took place in the 2900 block of Northwest 4 Court, in Pompano Beach.
It occurred while a group of men were fighting when Stanley allegedly displayed a weapon and fired into the crowd. Exactly how many rounds were discharged has yet to be determined, but no one in the crowd hit, as they scattered.
At least one bullet, however, did pierce the front door of a home located across the street, injuring 36-year-old Norma Mancilla. The mother of four children was rushed to North Broward Medical Center, where she remains in critical condition.
Mancilla was sitting on sofa watching television, at the time. None of the four children who were at home at the time of the shooting were injured.
Detectives with BSO’s Violent Crimes Unit investigated, and witnesses assisted them in identifying Stanley, who is known as ‘Fat Albert’ on the street, as the shooter.
Members of the community also assisted detectives in locating and recovering an AK-47 assault rifle from a nearby vacant field, which is beleived to be the gun used in the shooting.
Stanley surrendered at the BSO Main Jail in Ft. Lauderdale late Wednesday evening. He is charged with one count of attempted murder.
