Not much to report here yet, but what has been released so far is that a man was shot and killed by a Broward County sheriff's deputy around 6:30 last night.


Police were called to an apartment building on the 800 block of SE 22nd Avenue last night, where they found the suspect pointing a handgun at someone outside a second-floor apartment. "The man fired one round with his gun, striking no one," according to a release, and deputies ordered the man to put the gun down. Instead, he began walking down a set of stairs, gun in hand, and a deputy killed him.

Police say the man's name is being withheld until his next of kin is notified; we'll keep an eye out for any new details.
