ISLAND BOYS STUNNED AFTER MURDER SUSPECT ARRESTED AT THEIR HOME

WHAT HAPPENED?

On February 8, 2022, it was reported that the Island Boy’s home in Coral Springs, Florida had been raided by the authorities.

The rappers themselves were not arrested, but one of their childhood friends left the scene in handcuffs.

Authorities arrested one Andrew James Thomas on charges of first degree murder in a fatal drive-by shooting of an 8-year-old girl.

The Island Boys’ manager, Dovi Bezner, spoke to the media regarding the situation, claiming that the rappers were unaware Thomas was a suspect in the shooting.

He would come and hang out and do his thing and go back to whatever he got going on, but we had no clue about any of these allegations toward him.

We just knew him as a good person, someone who grew up with the Island Boys. If we knew something like this was going on, we would have never allowed him on the property.

According to police, Island Boy Alex Venegas had claimed that Thomas was running toward him down a hallway with a handgun when the SWAT team arrived.
