Update: According to City of Hollywood spokeswoman Deanna Bettinesch, the preliminary investigation reveals that there was an altercation between two groups which resulted in gunfire.

At this time we have one person detained and at this time we are also looking for an additional suspect.

At this point, he is believed to be a black male with dreads, a black short-sleeved shirt, and camouflage shorts. We ask people to avoid the area at this time while the investigation continues.

We also have a family support center that is being set up. It’s near Johnson Street and the North Ocean.

It’s a place where families can go and talk to detectives on the spot. Ask them about family members and they can also get it from one on their vehicles which may be inside the crime scene.

We also want to request that if there is anyone with any photos or videos that we ask them to email Hollywood PD tips to Hollywood FL. org.
