FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A man was shot and killed late Saturday outside his home in Fort Lauderdale, authorities said.

Roy Palarchie, 28, was shot several times around 9 p.m. in the 400 block of Northwest 13th Avenue, said Tracy Figone, a spokeswoman for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.

Paramedics pronounced Palarchie dead at the scene.

Witnesses said they heard gunshots and a woman screaming.

"I heard the girl screaming. I came out the door. I opened the door and I looked and I went back in. I saw the guy laying down. I saw the police coming. So that was it," said one neighbor who did not want to be identified.

After the shooting, a woman who covered her face with a T-shirt sat sobbing on the ground as investigators collected evidence. 

By early Sunday, someone had erected a makeshift memorial, leaving a white rose and other items on top of a bandana.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Homicide Detective Orlando Almanzar at 954-828-5546, Sgt. Steve Novak at 954-828-5556 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
