A driver was critically injured in a shooting in Lauderhill Wednesday morning, authorities said.

The incident happened around 11:30 a.m. in the 5200 block of Northwest 18th Court.

Lauderhill Police Lt. Mike Santiago said officers were responding to multiple 911 calls of two cars shooting at each other and found the driver of a BMW who had been shot multiple times.

Santiago said it appeared the BMW had veered off the road, struck a pole and came to a rest.

The driver was taken to Broward Health Medical Center where he was in critical condition. His name wasn't released.

The other car fled the scene, which was down the street from a police substation.

"It is pretty brazen," Santiago said.

The incident remains under investigation.
