Police are investigating after two people were shot and killed outside a Hollywood apartment complex early Thursday.

Hollywood Police Officials said the shooting took place shortly after midnight in a parking lot near the 2200 block of Fillmore Drive close to Dixie Highway.

“I heard about seven shots,” said Desmond Collins, who lives near the shooting scene. “You know, ‘bom, bom, bom, bom.'"

One person died at the scene while a second person died after being taken to an area hospital. Police have not released their identities.

Residents told NBC 6 they began to learn more about the shooting after one of the neighbors noticed a car parked in her spot. 

“She put her high beams on, she said she saw a head look up and it was bleeding,” said Mario Williams, who lives in the complex. “So she came down, and knocked on my door.”

Williams said that’s when they called 911. 

“When the police finally arrived, they tried to go resuscitate the guy in the first car, and they couldn’t because he was laying outside the car,” said Bobby, a neighbor who lives across the street, but asked NBC 6 not to use his last name. “After that, they brought another man out of the apartment building, who looked like he’d been shot in the face.”

No additional details were released and no information has been released on a possible suspect or suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
