LAUDERHILL, Fla. – Three men, including a South Florida rapper, were hospitalized Monday with gunshot wounds after a shooting on State Road 7 southbound in Lauderhill. As of Monday night, they were in stable condition and expected to be released soon.

Detectives identified one of the victims as a rapper known as Syko Bob.

A tan vehicle remained in the road riddled with bullets Monday afternoon, just north of Sunrise Boulevard. Authorities say they began receiving 911 calls shortly after 3 p.m. and that someone in a black BMW fired at that tan car, which then crashed into other vehicles while trying to get away.

After the crash, more gunfire erupted. Investigators say there was an exchange of gunfire between the cars involved. It’s unclear if anyone in the BMW was shot. They called all the area hospitals and didn’t get any additional victims.

The three victims in the tan car were taken to Plantation General Hospital by a bystander and then transported to Broward Health Medical Center.

Authorities said Monday night that the men who were injured were not cooperating with police.

Investigators continue to search for the black BMW.

A motive for the shootings has not yet been revealed.

Police remained at the scene for hours, finding shell casing along the street and sidewalk.
