The Broward Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that left three people injured early Sunday in West Park.

The incident occurred just before 1 a.m. in the 5700 block of West Hallandale Beach in West Park.

“I saw a couple people drop to the ground,” witness Christian DeStefano said. “There was an employee that was struck, as well as one unidentified person and the customer that U was helping out.”

Christian DeStefano works security at the club across the street and ran over to render aid the minute he heard the shots.

“I actually removed my belt and used it as a tourniquet on both of his legs,” DeStefano said. “I had two belts and tied them both around his legs to stop the bleeding until fire rescue arrived on scene.”

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says the victims are two men and a juvenile. They all sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

At the same time, a man runs out from the food truck, going low and crawling on the ground. After the coast is clear, he tries to get back up but appears to be shot. 

Detectives placed evidence markers both in and out of the food truck. What led to the shooting remains under investigation.

 “Everyone else got in their cars and left. they scattered, but he was the only one there on the ground that needed help.”

We reached out to the food truck, Hachi Bachi Soul Food, but haven’t received a response.
