Man questioned after shooting another man at Deerfield Beach home, deputies say

Danny Vu, 21, accused of killing man Monday night

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – A 21-year-old man has been questioned and released after he shot another man Monday night at his home in Deerfield Beach, authorities said.

According to Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Gina Carter, deputies were called to the home of Danny Vu just after 6:30 p.m. and found Josue Louissaint, 25, dead inside.

Carter said Vu's parents also live at the home, but they were not there at the time of the shooting.

A woman was with Louissaint when he went to Vu's home, but she ran away after the shooting, Carter said.

She was found a short time later by deputies and was questioned about the shooting.

Initially, deputies said it appeared that a homeowner fatally shot a would-be intruder, but investigators said Tuesday that it's unclear what triggered the shooting.

Detectives continue to gather evidence from the scene to determine what led to the altercation.

Carter said Vu was questioned and released.
