HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Multiple schools were placed on lockdown Monday morning after a shooting was reported in Hollywood, and police hope surveillance video helps them locate two persons of interest.
The fatal shooting was reported around 6:45 a.m. in the area of Johnson Street and North 73rd Avenue.
Hollywood Police Officer Christian Lata, who is also a spokesman for the police department, confirmed that one person was shot. The victim’s name and a motive for the shooting have not yet been released.
Home surveillance video shows two men who police say are considered persons of interest in the case, and who they would like to speak with.
According to Lata, none of the schools were involved in the shooting, but the lockdowns were issued as a precaution.
The schools that were affected by the police activity were Boulevard Heights Elementary, Hollywood Park Elementary and Apollo Middle School.
Lata said police dogs were in the area searching for an armed subject.
A Local 10 News crew was at the scene as numerous officers were in the area and a Broward Sheriff’s Office helicopter was flying overhead.
A black car was spotted after it had crashed into the home at the center of the shooting investigation. Police have confirmed that the vehicle is connected to the shooting scene.
