The US Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force (FRFTF) today announced the arrest of 33 year old Ronell Octavius Gillins of Miramar, Florida at an apartment complex located at 2616 Mission Road in Tallahassee, FL. Gillins was currently being sought by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office in Miramar, FL on charges of Attempted 1s Degree Murder. According to Broward County Detectives, Gillins was involved in a physical altercation with his pregnant fiancé, Tameka Francis, on 03/31/2012 in Miramar, FL in which Gillins is alleged to have choked and then slammed the victims head against a vehicle. Later that same day the victim of the domestic dispute was walking with her brother, Glenroy Dunn, when both were confronted by Gillins. According to information provided by investigators, Gillins fired one shot from a handgun striking Glenroy Dunn in his abdomen and then turned the gun towards his fiancé. As the two victims attempted to retreat to their residence, Gillins was observed running from the area and then fleeing in an unknown vehicle. Early this morning FRFTF Task Force members received information from the US Marshals task force in Ft. Lauderdale that Gillins had possibly fled South Florida and was staying with a family member in Tallahassee. FRFTF members discovered that Gillins had a nephew currently residing at the Stratford Landings Apartment Complex and established surveillance on the apartment early this morning. At approximately 8:30AM FRFTF members along with marked Leon County Sheriff’s Office deputies surrounded the residence and called Gillins out of the apartment where he was arrested without incident. Gillins was then transported to the Leon County Jail and booked in on his outstanding Broward County charge.
