PLANTATION, Fla. – A man was fatally shot outside a Plantation apartment complex Tuesday.

The shooting occurred at an apartment complex near Northwest 70th Avenue and 16th Street.

Sky 10 was above the apartment complex as a body was covered by a yellow tarp.

Plantation police identified the victim Wednesday as Jeron Perkins, 25.

Residents told Local 10 News they believe the man had moved to the neighborhood with his girlfriend last month.

Tracie Schoonover said her daughter heard a series of gunshots.

A man who didn't want to be identified said he heard a girl screaming and saw the victim on the ground.

"I believe it was an isolated incident," Detective Philip Toman said.

A motive for the shooting was not immediately known.
