The Broward Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who detectives say shot another driver in front of a Deerfield Beach market, left and then returned to look for what detectives believe may have been a shell casing and then took off again.

The shooting happened just before 7 p.m. May 5 at Ali'l Market, 5361 N. Dixie Hwy., Deerfield Beach.

According to BSO, Harold Strudwick had gotten off work and was driving in the alley next to the market when he cut off the driver of a red four-door sedan with dark tints.

When Strudwick reached the parking lot, the red sedan partially blocked his path, BSO said. The driver of that car got out, pointed a gun at Strudwick and fired one shot, according to BSO — all while witnesses watched. Strudwick was hit in the hand.

The passenger in Strudwick's car got out and ran into the store with the other people who were in the parking lot.

Meanwhile, the driver of the red car took off and returned seconds later. He can be seen in surveillance video getting out of the car, looking at the ground and then getting back in his car and taking off again.

The man is described as being about 5 feet, 10 inches tall with long dreadlocks and a medium frame. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and light colored shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to call BSO Det. Larry Heath at 954-321-4719 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
