Police are investigating an early morning shooting in Lauderhill that left one man dead and another person rushed to the hospital.
Officers responded to the scene near Northwest 18th Street and 52nd Avenue, where the incident took place around 2:30 a.m. in what police say appears to be an armed robbery attempt gone wrong.
Lauderhill Police Lt. Mike Santiago say several armed suspects broke into the apartment, where one man was killed and his roommate was shot in the leg.
“They were confronted by a victim—an adult male that was flagging a police officer down stating that he was shot in the leg," Santiago said.
Investigators say the victim has since been released from the hospital. Santiago did not say what items if any were stolen from the apartment.
Officials did not release the identity of either person shot or any information on the possible suspects.
