Two people are dead — including a pregnant woman — after separate shootings minutes apart that also left a 9-year-old girl wounded in South Broward Thursday night.
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, a call came in to 911 just before 11 p.m. reporting that shots had been fired at 4521 SW 22nd St.
Deputies found three victims inside a car. Family members told Miami Herald news partner CBS4 that the wounded were a family: Tyrell Myrick, 26, his five-months pregnant fiancée, 28-year-old Patrice Nunally, and her daughter Kalaya Clark.
“So my uncle was there, we was all outside talking and whatever. We went back inside and like 20 minutes later it happened. We haven’t been staying here for long; we don’t know nobody around here,” Myrick’s sister, Ashley Milline, told CBS4.

Milline said Nunally was shot in the head and died. Myrick is in the intensive care unit with gunshot wounds to the ribs and lower back, and Kalaya is in serious condition with wounds to her thigh, knee and arm.
A short time later, 26-year-old Cody Sanders was found with a bullet wound at 5410 SW 23rd St. All the victims were taken to Memorial Regional Hospital, where Sanders died.
Joy Oglesby, a BSO spokeswoman, said the two shootings appear to be unrelated at this time.
