HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – An investigation is ongoing into a fatal shooting that occurred over the weekend outside the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood.
Local 10 News has learned that all parties involved in the shooting, including the suspected gunman, have been located by police.
Investigators said it happened just before 4:30 a.m. Saturday in the valet area of the hotel. A witness told police that an argument led up to the shooting.
Tribal police said the gunman shot from a vehicle near the valet stand, striking the victim in the chest.
The victim was rushed to Hollywood’s Memorial Regional Hospital, where he ultimately died from his injuries.
“I see people panicking, going inside and out,” said a witness named Ivan, who did not want to give his last name. “One Gentleman was like, ‘Oh my God, oh my God,’ and I think that the gentleman that said ‘Oh my God,’ it was one of the friends of the one who got shot.”
As for the gunman, police said he took off after opening fire, but they said Monday they have since located everyone involved and are now working with the State Attorney’s Office to see how to move forward.
Meanwhile, investigators are reviewing surveillance cameras they said captured the shooting and the vehicle the shooter was in, but there is still no word yet on the identity of who pulled the trigger, or if any arrests will be made.
Authorities said the victim’s family has chosen not to release his name.
The State Attorney’s Office told Local 10 News Monday that the agency is assisting the Seminole Police Department in investigating the shooting and confirmed that no arrests have been made.
