Oakland Park, Florida – According to Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies, a teenager killed a man a few steps away from his workplace in Oakland Park.
Deputies say the shooting happened at around 4 p.m. Tuesday along the 4900 block of Northeast Ninth Avenue.
“It happened within seconds,” Louise Donaradski, the victim’s coworker, said. “I was behind him, got in my car. He got in his truck. I turned the corner, and I heard a gunshot.”
“I didn’t know him a long period of time, but I guess his friendship and his love was overwhelming,” a man said.
According to deputies, a 16-year-old shooter and the victim got into an argument before shots were fired. The alleged shooter has since been arrested.
Those who knew the victim said they are praying for their loved ones and hope they will get the answers they need.
“There was family, his children — just so — that he’s in heaven now,” Donaradski said.
At this time the identities of the victim or the alleged shooter are not released by the police.
