Hallandale Beach

Two shot in Hallandale Beach



Police tape and vehicles blocked a Hallandale Beach street Tuesday afternoon where two men were shot either on the porch or inside a triplex building set back from the main road.

At least one of the men was in critical condition Tuesday night.

The shooting took place at 1013 NW First Ave. about 4:30 p.m., said Maj. Thomas Honan.

“We have no motive, no identities of the men who were shot and no information on the shooter,” he said.

When police arrived, they found the two wounded men, but neither had identification on them.

The men were being taken by police escort to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood.

Honan said police canvassed the area, but “nobody saw or heard anything.”

“No one was cooperative,” he said.

The building, behind a house, has three efficiencies and can not be seen from Northwest First Avenue, Honan said.

Thomas Evans, who works at a nearby group home, said he was sitting on the porch with his client when he heard as many as nine gunshots.

“I heard pop, pop, pop and then a lady screaming,” he said. Evans said he quickly went inside.

“I didn’t know if they were coming this way.”

Honan said police continued their investigation into the evening Tuesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Hallandale Beach Police at 954-457-1444 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-593-8477.
