Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies are looking for 18-year-old Eric Hunter in connection with the shooting.

Police were called to a crowded Dania Beach street party at Phippen Road and S. W. 7 Street at approximately 1:25 a.m. Saturday regarding a “disturbance.” When they arrived, party-goers flagged them down to say a man as just shot in the street.
