HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – Hallandale Beach police are investigating after three people were shot early Tuesday outside a Wendy’s fast-food restaurant.

According to authorities, officers arrived at the scene at 1091 West Hallandale Beach Blvd, just east of Interstate 95, to find three dead victims, all with apparent gunshot wounds.

“We responded to the area around 12:48 this morning regarding an altercation with a shooting, at which time officers responded and they were able to find three people that were unresponsive -- now pronounced deceased,” Hallandale Beach Police Capt. Megan Jones said.

A Local 10 News crew was in the area later in the morning as a body covered with a white tarp could be seen in the parking lot of the Wendy’s.

Crime scene tape was put up around the fast food restaurant’s drive-through lane.

A couple hours later, a black Kia Optima and a silver Hyundai Sonata that appeared to have been involved in a collision were towed away from the scene.

Police haven’t provided any details on a possible suspect or what led up to the shooting.

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