What began with an early morning shooting in Hallandale Beach ended with three suspects being questioned after police followed their car down Interstate 95, according to police.
Just after 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Hallandale police received a 911 call reporting a shooting in the 900 block of Northwest 10th Street. When officers arrived, they found two men with gunshot wounds, according to Hallandale Beach Capt. RaShana Dabney-Donovan.
The two men — one of whom was in critical condition — were taken to Memorial Regional Hospital. A third man later showed up at the hospital and reported that he was hit in the shooting, Dabney-Donovan said.
Danielle Coles told Miami Herald news partner CBS4 that she is the mother of one of the shooting victims, Andrew Jackson. She said she dropped him off after he worked a morning shift at a Hollywood Burger King. Coles told the station this isn’t the first time someone in her family has been hit by a bullet.

Meanwhile, a Hollywood police officer spotted a red Oldsmobile, which was believed to be the getaway car used by the shooter or shooters. A Hallandale police officer spotted the car and followed it from Hallandale Beach onto I-95 south until it stopped before State Road 826, Dabney-Donovan said. Three suspects were taken into custody for questioning.
No arrests had been made as of Tuesday night.
