Chase Harder, a 21-year-old detention officer from Fort Lauderdale, has been apprehended and charged with first-degree murder after fatally shooting a man. The incident occurred on Tuesday, August 15, in the 9200 block of Ramblewood Drive, where Harder shot the victim multiple times before fleeing the scene with a child. The child’s father reported that Harder subsequently dropped off the child at his residence later that night. Harder then voluntarily contacted the police and surrendered himself.

In addition to the murder charge, Harder is also facing one count of written threats to kill or cause bodily harm. Following these allegations, he has been placed on administrative leave without pay. Detective Ali Adamson, a spokesperson for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department, revealed that Harder has been employed in the office since 2022.

Law enforcement authorities discovered that the victim had sustained several gunshot wounds upon arriving at the scene. An eyewitness stated that after the shooting, Harder was seen carrying a child over his shoulder as he fled to a white Mercedes-Benz.

The Coral Springs Police Department revealed that the child’s biological father confirmed that Harder dropped off the child at around 11 pm on the same night as the shooting. The following day, Wednesday, August 16, detectives announced the arrest of Chase Harder. However, the motive behind the shooting has yet to be disclosed.

The Coral Springs Police Department issued a statement expressing their condolences and acknowledging the distressing nature of the allegations. Harder confessed to the incident during his interview with detectives.

Harder is currently being held without bond at the Broward County main jail in Fort Lauderdale. Authorities are urging the public to come forward with any information or eyewitness accounts related to the shooting that occurred on Tuesday. The case remains under investigation.
