19-Year-Old Woman Shot to Death in Dania Beach

Authorities are investigating after a 19-year-old woman was shot and killed in Dania Beach Tuesday.

The shooting happened shortly before 3:30 p.m. in the 700 block of Southwest 4th Terrace, Broward Sheriff's Office officials said.

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue rushed the woman to Memorial Regional Hospital where she later died from her injuries.

The woman's identity hasn't been released.
