Investigation underway after reports of shots fired at Pompano Beach home

POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Deputies are investigating after shots were reportedly fired at a Pompano Beach home.

Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the home along Northeast 23rd Terrace and Ninth Street, at around 5 a.m., Friday.

Unconfirmed reports claim there was a house party at the residence.

7SkyForce HD hovered over the scene where plates of food could be seen on the ground as well as on a grill in the backyard.

A woman could also be seen sitting on the lap of a man who was placed in zip ties by deputies.

The man was later escorted away from the scene by police.

Neighbors said the neighborhood is usually a quiet one but that has changed in the last week.

“It’s been a nightmare,” said one neighbor.

Nearby residents said there have been loud late-night parties thrown by people renting the home every other day since July 4.

“According to the video, it was like 5:18 a.m.,” said one neighbor. “It’s just been like spring break.”

Junior Saintius rents out the home and said he let a friend use the house to shoot a music video. Saintius said, “The music video, that’s all they were doing here.”

Saintius said people were using the roof and the pool to shoot several scenes of the video.

“It must have been a little altercation that happened, then I’m not really sure how this shooting thing happened,” he said.

The last party, they said, ended Friday morning with gunshots. One neighbor’s surveillance system recorded the audio from the shooting.

“Once I heard the gunshots,” said resident Christopher Lastra. “A few minutes later, I heard sirens, so I figured something was going on. Then, all of a sudden, I see all the different cop cars showing up. Then I saw cars speeding out of here, going down the road and cops chasing after them.”

“I don’t know where they went, what else, but I know that when the police started showing up, they were scattering,” a neighbor said, “and I didn’t even know that the window was broke until I went over there and saw it.”

The back window of a dark red sedan could be seen with a large hole in it. BSO gathered evidence from the scene, which included bullet casings.

A second man was spotted in the back of a BSO cruiser with restraints on his hands.

Saintius said he has felt anything but welcome since moving in. “I wasn’t there when it happened. If there was an altercation that happened here, I don’t know how it happened.”

No injuries were reported.

Authorities taped off the street until the scene was cleared.

According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the department has responded to the home twice in the last year.

Detectives are currently waiting for a warrant to continue their investigation inside the home.
