Authorities have arrested a man accused of fatally shooting another man who was sitting in a friend's car.

Filipe Cruz, 21, was arrested late Thursday night in connection with the shooting death of Michael Frank.

Broward Sheriff's Office deputies said Cruz shot Frank, 22, early Thursday morning during a botched drug deal.

Deputies said Frank met Cruz in the 200 block of NE 14 Avenue to buy cocaine from him. After Frank's friend got the drugs, the friend punched Cruz in the face and tried to get away.

As they were making their getaway, deputies said, Cruz approached the car and shot Frank, who was sitting in the front passenger seat.

The identity of Frank's friend has not been released.

Cruz remained at the BSO's main jail Friday without bond.
