Search for gunman underway after shots fired in Hollywood neighborhood

HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are actively searching for a shooter in a Hollywood neighborhood.

Hollywood Police set up a perimeter along the 5600 and 5700 blocks of Flagler Street, at around 5:57 a.m., Thursday.

Officials said they are looking for a young man wearing all black.

The incident is being considered domestic-related by officials. They said one person was shot, but suffered injuries that are not life-threatening.

7SkyForce hovered over the scene where police were seen escorting an injured man to an ambulance.

Two other people were seen handcuffed and put in the back of police cruisers.

“I was sleeping, I keep on sleeping and they ask me to run,” said Vanessa Alonso who lives next door to where the shots were fired.

At around 8 a.m., SWAT team personnel arrived at a house in the area. Over a loudspeaker, the occupants were told to get out of the house with their hands in the air.
