That neighbor then watched Broward Sheriff’s deputies near his apartment during the overnight hours Sunday morning after the shooting. The man also described what he did while bullets were flying.
“I told her, I said ‘baby, get down’ because we didn’t know where the shots were coming from,” he said.
The scene was at an apartment complex not far from Southwest 81st Avenue and Mcnab Road.

The injured were taken to Broward Health North.
