A yellow tarp covered a body that lay in the road, according to aerial images of the scene broadcast by WSVN-Ch. 7. Those images also showed a handgun on the ground nearby.

A front desk manager at Home2 Suites, who declined to give her name, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that the person who was shot was not a guest at the hotel. She said she didn’t witness the shooting but heard the gun shots.

Sheriff’s cruisers were blocking the west lanes of Stirling Road, and drivers should avoid the area.

No additional information about the deputy or person who was shot was immediately available.
