DEERFIELD BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - A police investigation is currently underway at a Deerfield Beach home after a deadly shooting.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office blocked off the roadways near Northeast 40th Street and Sixth Avenue, at around 2 a.m., Wednesday.
Neighbors reported hearing multiple gunshots in the area.
“I knew for sure it was 1:56, because that’s when I looked at the clock when I heard the gunshots,” said a neighbor.
This man said he woke up to the sound of a gun battle. He would later learn one man was killed and two others were injured on the 600 block of Northeast 40th Street.
“And it was big boy guns,” he said. “I’m talking, it sounded like AK’s. You could hear the spray, pause, and then you heard a return fire with what sounded like a smaller set of guns.”
7 SkyForce flew over the area taped off by investigators.
Evidence cones were lined up on the sidewalk and in the street, and a Broward Sheriff’s Office mobile command center was set up for much of the day after an alarming night for people who live in this neighborhood.
Another neighbor said the man killed collapsed in his front yard. The windows of his cars parked nearby were shattered by gunfire.
“It’s sad. It’s sick,” he said. “This stuff is happening in every neighborhood. We’re sick of it. We’re tired of it.”
“It was a legit gunfight,” the neighbor said. “It’s not normal for this area. I can tell you it’s not normal.”
Police have not revealed the identities of the victims.
