Man tells police he killed woman because she gave him HIV
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (WSVN) -- A man told police he shot his ex-girlfriend because she gave him HIV. That woman later died in the hospital.
According to Hollywood Police, Anton Jamar Josey kidnapped 23-year-old Dominque Duval from her job in Fort Lauderdale armed with a gun at about 11 p.m. Witnesses said they heard Duval screaming and being dragged by Josey into a Mercedes-Benz.
Police caught up with Josey at a local gas station, pulling his car over for speeding. "The detectives attempted to stop that vehicle when it turned into the Shell Gas Station at 2801 Pembroke Road," said Hollywood Police Lieutenant Manny Marino. "When the vehicle came to a stop, however, a female exited the passenger side of the vehicle, ran back towards the detectives' direction. She was apparently holding her neck, had some type of injury. The detectives obviously approached the vehicle. The driver also exited, and at some point, made a statement as to shooting the victim."
Police said he later told them he shot her because she gave him HIV.
Josey appeared in bond court Thursday afternoon to faces murder charges and charges of possession of firearm by convicted felon, as well as some traffic infraction charges.
