WEST PARK, FLA. (WSVN) - Authorities are investigating two separate shootings in a West Park neighborhood that claimed the lives of a mother and a man, Thursday night.
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, a homicide investigation into both fatal shootings is underway, Friday morning, at 4521 S.W. 22nd St. and 5410 S.W. 23rd St.
At around 10:45 p.m., BSO received a call regarding shots fired at the first location. Upon arrival, investigators said, deputies found three victims: 28-year-old Tyrelle Myrick, 28-year-old Patrice Nunnally and 9-year-old Kayla Clark. All three were identified by Myrick’s sister, Ashley Milline.
“My mom called me and told me that she didn’t survive,” said Milline, “so I’m going to assume the baby didn’t survive either.”
According to BSO, the three victims were inside of a car when several gunmen surrounded the vehicle and began shooting dozens of rounds. “There do appear to be quite a number of shell casings on the ground,” said BSO Lt. Chris Mulligan.
All three victims from the first shooting location were transported to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, where Nunnally was later pronounced dead. Myrick and Clark remain in the hospital, and they are both expected to be OK, according to family.
Milline said her sister was five months and in her late 20s. “We don’t have beef with nobody,” said Milline. “We don’t – my family, we don’t do this. You know what I’m saying? We were just outside mourning my auntie that passed a week ago. Then, this happened. This is a lot for us to deal with. My aunt passed, then my sister-in-law passed a week later. It’s a lot to deal with.”
Mulligan said witnesses were around when shots were fired at the first location. “Witnesses advised that there was a black SUV style vehicle that was seen in the area at the same time shots were fired,” said Mulligan. “Three black males were around the vehicle, and then the vehicle drove off.”
The shooting left a section of Southwest 22nd Street littered with bullet fragments, broken glass and the victims’ shot-up vehicle.
Soon after the first shooting, investigators said, BSO responded to a man shot at the second location in West Park. “Approximately 15 minutes later, deputies received another call regarding gunshots at a second location,” said Mulligan. “The deputies responded to that location, where they found a black male adult who was injured. Deputies then began to provide first aid.”
That man was also transported to Memorial Regional Hospital where he died due to his injuries. He was later identified as 26-year-old Cody Sanders.
Detectives believe the shootings are likely unrelated.
“I just hope whoever did this comes forward,” said Milline.
Authorities continue to investigate.
