Police responded to a crash scene at a Fort Lauderdale home Monday and found the driver had died from multiple gunshot wounds.

The homeowner, who identified himself as only Wayne, said he heard something hit the front gate of his house in the 500 block of NW 19th Avenue at around 5 p.m.

“When I walked outside, the car was on top of the palm tree and the tires were spinning," Wayne said. "And I was beating on the window and the guy wasn’t responding at all. He had his head turned to the side.”

Investigators said the driver of a black sedan somehow crashed through Wayne’s fence and ended up in the front yard of his home, but he died from a shooting somewhere else.

Police said the driver was not responding and that they found multiple gunshot wounds on him. They don't know where the shooting happened or how ended up in Wayne's front yard.

There was minimal damage to the home, and no one else was hurt.

Anyone with information should call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
