POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – Deputies in Broward County spent most of the day investigating a triple shooting that happened early Sunday morning.

Broward Sheriff’s Office said the call about the shooting came in from South Dixie Highway and Southwest 13th Court sometime after 5 a.m.

A blue Ford Flex was the focus of investigators’ attention at an Exxon gas station. The driver of the car, one of the 3 victims, reportedly raced to the gas station. When Broward Sheriff’s deputies arrived, they found 1 person already dead near the gas pumps and two survivors inside the vehicle seriously injured.

Investigators believe the shooting happened elsewhere, about a half mile down the road in the 700 block of Southwest 13th Court. Local 10 News saw shell casings from bullets in the road and women’s fuzzy slippers could be seen on the side of the street.

The window of a nearby business was hit with a stray bullet.
