POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - A car crashed into a house and burst into flames while fleeing from deputies after a reported shooting and stabbing at a nightclub in Pompano Beach, Saturday morning.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office received a call about a shooting and stabbing at Singers Karaoke Klub, located at 3521 NW 8th Ave., at around 5:20 a.m.
Paramedics transported two people to Broward Health North. Their conditions remain unknown.
Deputies were told to be on the lookout for a vehicle seen fleeing the scene. A deputy spotted the vehicle, and the subject bailed out of the car in a residential neighborhood, located near Northwest Eighth Street and Fourth Avenue.
“He was at the wrong place, at the wrong time,” said one onlooker.
As deputies were trying to locate that subject, a silver Jeep sped away from the area. When BSO deputies attempted to stop the Jeep, the driver fled.
The driver of the Jeep then lost control of the car and rammed into a single family home, located near Northeast Second Avenue and 23rd Street.
The Jeep caught fire, and the blaze spread to the home, leaving the family who lives there displaced.
“We see fire, so we are scared,” said the homeowner.
No one in the house was injured.
The driver of the vehicle was detained.
The charred remains of the Jeep were later towed from the home.
As for the family, they are trying to determine what to do, just days before Christmas. “I lose everything,” said the homeowner.
At this time, it remains unknown why the driver of the Jeep fled or whether he was involved in the prior incident at Singers Karaoke Klub.
If you have any information on this incident, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.
