Man fatally shot outside Coral Springs home

CORAL SPRINGS, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are investigating after a man was shot to death outside his Coral Springs home.

Coral Springs Police and Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene along the 3800 block of Rock Island Road at around 9:15 p.m., Tuesday.

The victim, later identified as 48-year-old Hicksbert Dwight Grant, was transported to Broward Health North, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Family members said they are at a loss for words as they try to understand why someone would shoot and kill their loved one.

“He was a great person,” a family member said. “He’s a great family person. He was a great father. It’s just senseless.”

Neighbors in the area were stunned by what took place.

“I was in my kitchen, so I just thought it was fireworks,” a woman said. “I went outside and they had the whole street blocked off.”

7News cameras captured detectives removing boxes of evidence from the residence.

Detectives were also seen using metal detectors to try to locate shell casings on the front lawn.

“It’s quiet around here,” the woman added. “You don’t get stuff like that here. Everyone in the neighborhood is freaking out now. People I don’t even know are stopping and talking, cause we don’t get that kind of stuff here.”

No arrests have been made as of Wednesday afternoon.

“If anybody knows anything, please come forward to bring this person to justice,” a family member said. “He was a great guy. He’ll be missed by many — by many.”

A dark-colored Dodge Charger was towed away from the scene.

Police have not released any information on a possible shooter.
