    All three suspects are in custody after a traffic stop where shots were fired in Lauderhill Wednesday, authorities said.

    Broward Sheriff's Office deputies found one suspect in a canal, BSO spokeswoman Dani Moschella said.

    The incident followed a burglary that occurred shortly after 11 a.m. in Deerfield Beach, the BSO said.

    Deerfield Beach deputies issued a be-on-the-lookout message for the suspect vehicle, a black 2009 Toyota Solara, which Lauderhill Police spotted in the area of Oakland Park Boulevard and Rock Island Road, the BSO said.

    Officers conducted a traffic stop of the car. Shots were fired, and what happened during the traffic stop is under investigation, the BSO said.

    The suspects fled and bailed out of the car on the 2500 block of State Road 7, according to the BSO. Two of them were taken into custody initially, as authorities searched for the third.

    “BSO deputies jumped into the canal and arrested one man from the canal. A second suspect they found hiding under a vehicle. They arrested him," Moschella said. "A third suspect who may have been bleeding then went to the Cypress Chase apartments and went into an apartment. SWAT team members just recently around 3:30 went inside and apprehended him as well."

    That third suspect was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the BSO said.

    SWAT teams from the BSO and Lauderhill Police, as well as BSO K-9 and aviation unit personnel took part in the search for the third suspect, according to the BSO.
