FT. LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – The Broward County Sheriff’s Office has one person in custody following a deadly shooting near Fort Lauderdale.

The shooting took place about 8:30 Sunday night  in the 2000 block of Southwest 50th Avenue in Central Broward County.  According to Mike Jachles with Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue, a gunman shot into a crowd of people gathered outside a home.
