OAKLAND PARK, FLA. (WSVN) - A man has died after being transported to the hospital following a shooting in Oakland Park.
Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies and Oakland Park Fire Rescue crews responded to a shooting at a home in the area of Northwest 19th Avenue and 44th Street at around 11:20 a.m., Monday.
The victim was transported to Broward Health Medical Center as a trauma alert after he was shot in the head inside the home.
As 7SkyForce hovered over the scene, a woman could be seen crying in the back of a deputy’s SUV. She was taken away in handcuffs.
Police said she called 911 after saying she shot her ex. She lives at the home with family.
“She just said, ‘There’s a gunshot that happened inside my house,'” said neighbor Jay Alboy. “I just hauled ass over there, and that’s it. I came over here, and they won’t let me in.”
After the man was transported to the hospital, the woman also needed medical attention after fainting at the scene.
Police shut down the area, not allowing anyone to enter the scene as they investigate exactly what led up to the shooting.
“I don’t know, I was just on my route,” said Bruno LaGuerre. “I come into my house, and I see all the squabbling.”
Before he died, the victim came to the woman’s house to discuss something.
The homeowner of the home and father of the woman who shot the man, however said she’s not in custody but she’s at the hospital.
