Broward Sheriff's Office officials confirmed a shooting happened in the area of Northwest 36th Street and State Road 7 that left one person hospitalized with non-life threatening inuries.

Officials said investigators are still looking into what led to the shooting but witnesses said it was a case of road rage.

One witness said the driver of a truck got out and started running after the driver of a grey or silver sedan then started shooting.

Andy Boyajian and his co-workers at Carmart of Broward had their car sales interrupted when they heard gunfire.

“We started hearing gunshots everywhere, everywhere. And then we saw one guy dragging himself. He got shot in the middle of 441. Some guys were using big guns, AR’s,” Boyajian said.

Evidence markers and blood were seen not far from the sedan. Deputies had the area closed off with yellow crime scene tape.

No other information was immediately known.
