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.

According to officials, one person was transported by Broward Sheriff’s Fire Rescue to Broward Health Medical Center where he died.

“When I heard, oh my God, somebody killed or somebody killed somebody. I heard the gun but I don’t know what happened,” said neighbor, Demaris Marenco.

According to BSO, after the shooting, the gunman got into a vehicle and left the scene.  A deputy responding to the scene spotted the vehicle a couple miles away in Plantation and stopped it.
