A shooting that injured two men prompted a big response from law enforcement Friday afternoon in Fort Lauderdale.

The shooting happened at around 3:25 p.m. in the 100 block of Southeast 22nd Street, according to Fort Lauderdale police. The first shooting victim was found at that scene and a short time later, the second victim was found in the 400 block of Southeast 18th Street.

Detectives say a man in a vehicle initially tired to get away from officers, but they caught up to him and took him into custody. He was later released after it was determined he was not connected to the shooting.

Both victims were taken to Broward Health for treatment. Police said they were uncooperative to law enforcement and did not want to provide details or move forward with charges.
