MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Broward sheriff’s deputies and SWAT team members descended on a Pembroke Park apartment complex early Tuesday morning near after someone shot at two deputies.

A woman who lives in the area said she saw patrol cars whizzing by her apartment and went outside to find out what was happening.

“I came outside and I’m like this is my neighborhood and I need to know what’s going on. I live here, I’m not trying to get shot. So I came out and I asked the cop bravely, because I was scared, and I asked the cop what’s going on and the cop told me he said that somebody was shooting at the police,” said Tee.

According to sheriff’s investigators, just before 3 a.m., two deputies on patrol in an unmarked car were shot at in the 5100 block of SW 41st Street. Neither deputy was injured.

Neighbors said they heard the gunfire and feared for their lives.

“It was like over 10 shots, 10 shots the first time, everybody cut the lights off, got down on the floor, you know just in case any bullets went through,” said Kashanti King.

“My life, my life,” said one neighbor who said it sounded like fireworks at around 3 a.m.

At daybreak, bullet holes could be seen dotting the outside of the apartment building.

Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS (8477).
