When Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives attempted to take an armed subject into custody, the encounter resulted in an exchange of gunfire. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the deputy-involved shooting.
At approximately 2:30 p.m. on June 19, detectives with BSO’s Crime Suppression Team from the Deerfield Beach district attempted to apprehend the armed male in reference to a narcotics investigation. The shooting occurred behind a rehabilitation center in the 2600 block of North Andrews Avenue in Wilton Manors.
The suspect, Shane Lyons, was transported to Broward Health Medical Center. No deputies were injured, and no other injuries were reported.
Lyons is facing three counts of attempted felony murder, three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill and one count each of possession of a weapon by convicted felon, possession with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver heroin, possession with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver methamphetamines, possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis and resisting an officer with violence.
Per BSO policy, the two deputies who fired their weapons have been placed on administrative assignment pending further investigation.
