“I couldn’t understand what it really was, but I knew it didn’t sound good,” a neighbor told Local 10 media. “In fact, I saw them place one of the victims on the ground and they were doing cardiopulmonary resuscitation. I think maybe 15 minutes after that, I saw them carry a woman out on a stretcher, and she was really screaming, so I knew she was alive.”
The Broward County police deployed a SWAT team in the area where the shots were fired to prevent other similar cases, since the origin of the shots was unknown at the beginning.
More than an hour after the shooting, police said on social media that they were not looking for anyone else in connection with the shooting and that the situation was under control. At the same time, they advised vehicle drivers to avoid the area due to the intense police activity.
