LAUDERHILL, Fla. - Police are investigating a fatal shooting outside a Lauderhill home.

Lauderhill police said someone made a "frantic" call to 911 about 7:45 a.m. Friday to report a shooting at a home near Northwest Fifth Court and Northwest 33rd Avenue.

When police arrived, they found a man with several gunshot wounds dead in a car.

A view from Sky 10 showed the man's body in the front passenger seat. The driver's side door was open.

"Just got to deal with it the way it comes, but man, this needs to stop," the victim's father, Dammon Payne, said. "You know, for nothing. I'm quite sure, for nothing. People don't fight (anymore). They've got to shoot. It's senseless. It's cowardice."

Relatives told Local 10 News that the doors were locked, so they had to break the car's glass to get to the victim. 

Homicide detectives are investigating and believe there might have been more than one shooter.

"Everyday, you see this," Payne said. "Put down the guns. Put down the guns. But they (are not) listening, so, I'm just as eager as you to want to find out what's going on."

Payne said this is the second son he now has to bury.

"This ain't easy for me," he said.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
