Authorities are searching for a group of gunmen who opened fire on two people inside a car in Pompano Beach early Tuesday, causing the vehicle to crash into a wall, police said.
The incident happened around 1:20 a.m. in the 100 block of Northeast 35th Street when the suspects who were standing outside their vehicle fired at the moving car, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.
The driver accelerated and hit a decorative trim wall of a house down the street. The passenger fled on foot to a nearby gas station for help while the driver remained at the scene, the BSO said.
Several bullets also struck a nearby church and a parked car had a window that was struck by gunfire.
Neither the passenger nor the driver of the car was injured in the gunfire. Both suffered minor injuries in the crash and were treated at the scene.
The suspects fled the scene and their vehicle was later found abandoned in Lauderhill.
Authorities are still investigating the shooting and processing the scene for evidence.
