Police are investigating a deadly shooting following a party at an Airbnb property in Miramar early Saturday morning.

At approximately 2 a.m. Saturday, the Miramar Police Department responded to the 8600 block of Wilshire Drive after receiving a call about shots fired, police said.

While officers were enroute, they were diverted to a car accident where witnesses advised that the male driver, who attended the party at the Airbnb, was shot and crashed into a car at 8688 Miramar Parkway.

Police said the man was pronounced dead at the scene and the suspect, a man who also attended the party, fled the area before authorities arrived. Officers did not get a description of the vehicle.

"Airbnb bans parties, and are shocked by this senseless act of gun violence that took place last night in Miramar," a statement from the home-sharing website said. "Airbnb is quickly working to understand what occurred, and we stand ready to support the Miramar Police Department in their investigation." 

Airbnb also said they have deactivated the listing as the investigation continues.

The owner of the Airbnb says a shooting did not happen on her property. NBC 6 has reached out to police asking for more clarity on this allegation.

Investigators say the suspect is on the run. Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
