DEVELOPING STORY: At least 9 people were shot Monday evening on the “Broadwalk” in Hollywood Beach, Florida. Police say there may be more victims.
Video from the scene shows first responders and beachgoers tending to victims. Another video, which you can see below, shows people scrambling to safety when the gunfire started.
“Police are responding right now. We have victims treated by police and paramedics on scene and transported to the hospital,” Mayor Josh Levy told the Sun Sentinel newspaper. “It seemed like people might have gotten caught in the crossfire. But I can’t verify that.”
Police say one person is in custody and it appears to have stemmed from a fight between two groups.
A department spokesperson said the suspect at large is believed to be a Black male with dreads, a black short sleeve shirt, and camo shorts, Fox News reports.
Hollywood Police told tourists and residents to avoid “the area of Johnson to Garfield Streets, as well as the Broadwalk, due to an ongoing shooting investigation.”
“Heavy police presence in the area,” the police department said.
