    Police cars blocked off eastbound Sheridan Street for more than an hour as the investigation took place, but nearby Sheridan Technical Center did not go on lockdown.

    Witnesses told police they saw a silver, two-door Audi fleeing the scene. 

    Officials said they believe a later incident involving a car that was driven into a canal is related to the shooting.

    At 8:44 a.m., a man was seen driving a car through a fence and into a canal behind Boyd Anderson High School in Lauderdale Lakes, officials said. He jumped out of the car and let it coast into the body of water before fleeing on foot, according to police.

    Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call Broward CrimeStoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
