A West Park warehouse was the scene of a shooting that left one man dead Thursday night.

Around 8:30 p.m., witnesses heard multiple gunshots in the 2100 block of SW 57 Terrace. BSO deputies and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue quickly arrived on the scene and discovered a man on the ground, near a pickup truck in the confines of a warehouse facility. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue pronounced the victim dead and BSO Homicide Unit detectives were summoned to the scene.

Meantime, a search of the surrounding neighborhood and businesses brought in deputies, K-9 dogs and a BSO helicopter to look for any clues to the shooting.

The area of SW 57 Terrace was cordoned off for several hours while BSO Crime Scene Unit detectives processed the scene. The Broward County Medical Examiners Office will conduct an autopsy on the victim.

Anyone with information about this case should call BSO Detective Shane Schroeder at 954-321-4210 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477). Information leading to an arrest could lead to a cash reward for the tipster.
