    A man was injured in a deputy-involved shooting in Lauderdale Lakes Thursday morning, Broward Sheriff's Office officials said.

    The shooting happened after deputies responded to a domestic violence incident at a home in the 3500 block of Northwest 33rd Avenue around 9 a.m.

    Officials said there was a fight between a brother and his sister, and that deputies have been to the home multiple times in the past.

    "His sister went in her room and locked herself in and he busted through the door and continued to pursue her. She ran outside and she was able to call 911," Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said at a news conference after the incident Thursday.

    When the deputies arrived, negotiators tried to clam the man down and three deputies tried to use a Taser on him but it didn't work, officials said.

    "All our deputies wanted to do was help, assist, and two of our deputies were crisis intervention trained," Israel said. "They knew how to deal with an individual who was in this frame of mind."

    Officials said one deputy opened fire, wounding the unidentified man. The man was given CPR at the scene and taken to Broward Health Medical Center where he underwent surgery and was in the intensive care unit.

    His exact condition was unknown.
