A fight between two men late Tuesday night at a Lauderhill seafood restaurant escalated to a shooting that sent one of them to the hospital, police said.
In a statement, Lauderhill Police Lt. Michael Santiago says the incident started inside the Krafty Crab restaurant located off 4402 North University Drive. The fight spilled out into the parking lot, where one man shot the other three times.
Officers couldn't find the victim when they arrived at the scene but later found out he was driven to Plantation General Hospital, where he was treated and later released.
Police said the shooter was defending himself and the victim was the aggressor. The victim did not cooperate with the police, and the shooter did not want to press charges.
