A suspected gunman was taken into custody after a naked man was found shot in Pembroke Pines Wednesday morning, police said.

Pembroke Pines Police officials said they received several 911 calls around 8:45 a.m. of a naked man walking along the 7200 block of Pembroke Road, followed by a 911 call about a gunshot in the area.

Officers responded to the area and found the naked man bleeding on the ground with an apparent gunshot wound. He was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital in critical condition, police said.

Officers and a SWAT team also responded to the nearby Sunshine Garden Apartments, located at 6840 Pembroke Road.

The alleged shooter later called police and said he was at the apartment complex and wanted to surrender, officials said. He was taken into custody and was being questioned by investigators.

Police have not released the identity of either man involved, and said the circumstances surrounding the shooting remained under investigation.

Several officers were still at the apartment complex, which remained closed off with police tape into Wednesday afternoon.

One witness said he saw the naked man and heard the gunshots.

"Right around 8:45 we observed this naked man walking down on Pembroke Road. A few minutes after we saw him walking around we saw him enter this apartment complex and went to the back. A few minutes later we heard some gunshots and then after that we saw a whole bunch of police cars," Damion Andre said.
