Police are looking for a gunman who was captured on video fleeing the scene after allegedly shooting another man in Fort Lauderdale.
The shooting happened on the night of January 4 in the 3200 block of West Broward Boulevard.
Fort Lauderdale police officials said officers responding to the scene found a man with gunshot wounds.
The man, whose identity has not been released, was alerted to the trauma at Broward Health Medical Center by Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue.
Police say the shooter and victim were involved in an argument in a parking lot that escalated and led to the suspect pulling out a handgun and shooting at the victim, his car and another vehicle.
RAW: Police are searching for a gunman who was captured on video fleeing the scene after allegedly shooting another man in Fort Lauderdale.
Surveillance footage from a nearby business showed the suspect fleeing the scene on foot.
The victim, Kevin Williamson, said he was grateful to be alive after being shot in the chest and hand.
“That finger just came off completely. It was hanging by the skin,” Williamson said Tuesday.
Williamson said the shooting happened outside the barbershop where he worked. He said a car drove into the parking lot and nearly hit his car, and when he signaled the driver to move, a man jumped out of the car and shot him.
“I was so surprised, I didn’t hear the shot, I didn’t know,” Williamson said. “I just felt the burn and the blood so the first thing that came to mind was to apply pressure to the wound. Then I shouted to the other barbers that I had been shot and they called the police.”
Police are asking anyone with information about the suspect or the shooting to call them at 954-828-5914.
