A Good Samaritan was fatally shot after he stepped in to stop an elderly man from being verbally abused. Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives are investigating.
Just after 9 a.m. Sept 22, BSO responded to reports of shots fired at the Kwik Stop, 5551 W. Hallandale Beach Blvd. in Pembroke Park.
