FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - A man has died after a shooting in Fort Lauderdale.
The shooting took place near the intersection of Northwest 10th Terrace and Eighth Street, just after 8 a.m., Monday.
When police arrived on the scene, they found the victim in the middle of the street.
One good Samaritan said he heard the gunshot and went to help.
“I really want to make sure he’s alive and well, and he’s still stable, and he can go on and move on with his life,” he said. “Nobody was around. I tried to hold his neck to make sure he’s all right, make sure he stays stable and breathing. That’s all I was trying to do.”
The victim was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
“I was really trying to go and help the person,” the good Samaritan said. “I’ve seen him lifeless out here.”
It’s not the first murder to take place at the intersection.
Back in February, 39-year-old Sheldon Daniels was shot in front of the same food store.
Police said surveillance video caught the shooter approaching the scene and then fleeing.
The man who helped Monday said he didn’t see who pulled the trigger, just a person in need of help.
“I was putting pressure right on his neck area. He had a wound on his neck area, but that’s all I was trying to do,” he said.
Police are now investigating.
