POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Deputies are investigating after a man was shot in Pompano Beach.
Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies and Florida Highway Patrol troopers rushed to the scene at a RaceTrac gas station along West Atlantic Boulevard and Northwest Sixth Avenue, Monday morning.
7News cameras captured a parked silver sedan riddled with bullet holes on the side and window.
Rescue crews transported a man, whom family members identified as TJ, believed to be in his 20s to an area hospital after being shot in the face.
Troopers said the victim is not cooperating with the investigation but said he is expected to be OK.
Investigators said the shooting actually started on Interstate 95 near Broward Boulevard.
The driver drove to the gas station to get help.
A witness spoke with 7News about what she saw at the gas station.
“Three young guys, one older woman. One of the young guys got shot, and I think the woman was driving, the older woman,” said witness Cynthia. “The cops were so aggressive. They were saying, ‘Move your car! Move your car!’ cause I was parked three or four cars down from the car that’s in the incident, and they needed to have that blocked off as a crime scene. There were a lot of bullet holes, and that’s another horrible sight to see this early in the morning. It’s 25 after 5.”
A tow truck hooked up and removed the bullet-riddled car from the scene at around 7:30 a.m.
“Unbelievably bad, you don’t ever expect to see it,” Cynthia added, “but here I am, seeing it. All of this craziness.”
It remains unclear what led to the shooting.
Authorities are now on the hunt for the shooter or shooters responsible.
