1 dead, 1 taken to hospital in North Lauderdale shooting

Family identifies victim fatally shot as Wyslert Fraise

BSO deputies confirmed two men were shot Tuesday morning. One man was pronounced dead at the scene while the other was taken to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries.

NORTH LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Two men were shot just before 7 a.m. Tuesday in a North Lauderdale neighborhood, deputies said.

Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to a shooting at 7701 SW 10th Court, where two men were found shot inside a vehicle.

North Lauderdale fire-rescue pronounced one man dead at the scene. He was later identified by family members as Wyslert Fraise, 36.

“Just to know that somebody killed your brother, your son, your dad, and they don’t know who did it, that’s the hurtful part,” Jessica Toney, the victim’s sister-in-law, said.

A second unidentified victim was taken to Broward Health North with life-threatening injuries, the BSO confirmed.

A tarp was seen over the white vehicle with at least one bullet hole in the rear passenger door. It’s unclear to whom the vehicle belonged or what the victims were doing in the area.

Fraise, a father of two adult daughters, was dropping off a friend before he was heading into work, family members said. The family believes the two men shot were unintended targets.

No arrests have been made at this time while officers continue investigate.
