The victim who was shot was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

“I’m shocked, really, because nothing like that has ever happened in this neighborhood,” one resident, Joanna Pellquin said. “This is a very weird time. People don’t know what to do with themselves and so we make poor decisions if we don’t have the guidance to keep us from not doing that.”

Police are still searching for the three people involved in the home invasion and shooting.

Anyone with further information is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
