BSO detectives investigating after 2 men fatally shot in Pompano Beach

Deputies: 2 people detained for questioning after shooting

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are investigating a shooting that left two men dead Thursday morning in Pompano Beach.

Deputies set up a perimeter around the crime scene at a three-story apartment building at the corner of Southeast 11 Avenue and Third Street.

Fire Rescue personnel also responded to the crime scene.

Sky 10 flew over the scene where one of the bodies was seen on the sidewalk of the apartment complex.

Deputies shut down several blocks around the apartment complex, even accessing the building from the roof as detectives continue their investigation.

Witnesses told Local 10 News that they could hear a man and woman arguing before shots were fired.

“(I heard) pop, pop, pop, pop, and then a little silence and more pops. They must have emptied a whole clip because it was a few pops,” said Barbara O’Donnell.

Another witness said he heard up to 15 shots during the shooting and said authorities arrived in a quick manner.

“The cops were here, bam! They were like already around the corner,” said Lisa Binger.

According to BSO Public Information Officer Claudinne Caro, two people have been detained for questioning following the shooting.

Detectives were asking anyone with information about the case to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
