NORTH LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Deputies are investigating a shooting in North Lauderdale that left one man dead and another hospitalized.
Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies and North Lauderdale Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene along Southwest 10th Court and 78th Avenue just after 6:45 a.m., Tuesday.
Authorities said a man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Dominique Toney told 7News the deceased victim is her brother-in-law, 36-year-old Wyslert Fraise.
Toney was tasked with letting one of Fraise’s daughters know what happened.
“First thing she said, ‘Why? No!'” Toney said. “She was like, ‘I’m just getting close back with him.'”
