Lake Park, Fla. – Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies are investigating after a shooting at a Lake Park intersection.
Sheriff’s spokesman Terry Barbera said deputies were called to a shooting at Congress Avenue and Silver Beach Road just after 10:30 a.m.
When deputies arrived, they found an abandoned vehicle riddled with bullets.
Deputies found a man suffering from a gunshot wound at a nearby Murphy USA gas station in the Walmart parking lot.
The injured man was taken to hospital where he underwent surgery.
The man, who did not want to be identified, said he was sitting in his car when he heard the gunshots.
“All I know is a black car sped by and it went quiet all of a sudden,” he told WPTV. “Police cars were swarming like bees. I walked into the gas station and there was a guy (he was) in the bathroom. He looked beat up. They put him in an ambulance.”
A short time later, Riviera Beach police were called to a shooting at Congress Avenue and Blue Heron Boulevard, where a car had been shot. However, no one was injured.
Deputies also found an abandoned car associated with the shooter in the 1500 block of Lucerne Avenue in Lake Worth Beach, Barbera said.
Traffic was closed at the intersection during the investigation.
A cause and suspect were not immediately known.
