South Florida Man Killed In Fight Over Cigarette

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a South Florida man was shot to death when a fight broke out after he tried to bum a cigarette from another man.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says 30-year-old Glenn Thervil asked to bum a cigarette from 25-year-old Roderick Ferguson while the two were hanging out at a Deerfield Beach park on Wednesday.

When Ferguson refused, authorities say Thervil pulled a 32-caliber handgun. Others in the group urged Thervil to leave the park, but returned later.

Deputies say a fight broke out. Ferguson shot Thervil, then fled with the other men.

Authorities tracked Ferguson to a nearby home, where he surrendered to a SWAT team.

Ferguson has been charged with first-degree murder. He is being held in the Broward County Jail. Jail records don’t list an attorney.
