DANIA BEACH, Fla. – A 19-year-old woman was fatally shot Tuesday afternoon in a Dania Beach apartment.

Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Dani Moschella said deputies were called to the shooting just before 3:30 p.m. at an apartment on Southwest Fourth Terrace.

The woman was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Moschella said the woman's 20-year-old live-in boyfriend told deputies that an unknown gunman shot her and drove off in a getaway car. However, when detectives questioned the boyfriend, he gave multiple, inconsistent stories about the shooting, Moschella said.

Sky 10 was above the scene as deputies spoke with a man who was sitting outside next to the home.

The investigation is ongoing, but Moschella said detectives are confident there is no shooter at large.
