NORTH LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies gathered in a neighborhood in North Lauderdale for a possible shooting investigation.

Officials said police responded to shots fired around 12:30 a.m. where they found one man shot dead in front of a house on the 8200 block of Southwest Fourth Court, Wednesday.

“I came out, and I saw a body on the floor,” said one neighbor.

Residents nearby said they heard more than four gunshots.

Yellow tape blocked off the street and a body covered in a yellow tarp was also seen in front of the home.

One neighbor, who did not want to be on camera, said this was not the first time an incident similar to this one had happened. He said the area is normally a peaceful community, but the people who enter and exit the home involved in this shooting have been terrorizing the location for the last year.

“[The police] are aware of it,” he said. “They know about the drugs. They know about the people living in that property, and it’s the same thing over and over.”

7News covered a story about a man being airlifted from the same house back in November.

The focus of the investigation was a house on the taped-off block that appeared to have several bullet holes from the aforementioned incident.

Deputies were also seen searching a white pick-up truck in the middle of the road; that vehicle was later removed from the scene by a tow truck.

As the truck was being towed away, evidence markers were also noticeable, indicating there may have been bullet holes in the car.

According to police, there have been several calls to this home in the past.

Neighbors are in fear after the shooting that occurred in front of the house.

BSO has not confirmed how the events of the scene unfolded, as they continue to investigate.
