A man was shot and killed Sunday afternoon as he apparently sat in his car at a Citgo gas station in Lauderdale Lakes, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
The fatally wounded man first drove some 10 blocks north away from the gas station before careening onto a raised median at Northwest 34th Street and State Road 7.
Police said a call came in just after 2 p.m. reporting a shooting. When officers arrived, they found the crashed car of the unidentified victim, a man in his 20s. He was still behind the wheel.
The man was airlifted to Broward Health Medical Center, where he died.

This marks the second time in a week a person has been shot and killed at a South Florida gas station.
