    Lake Worth shooting injures two

    Another drive by shooting;

    Men opened fire from car, hitting victims

    By Dianna Cahn | South Florida Sun-Sentinel April 30, 2008

    Lake Worth - Two men in an older white four-door sedan of American make opened fire Tuesday evening at two men on J Street, sending bullets flying in a residential neighborhood and injuring the two victims, police said.

    One man was shot in the shoulder and hip, the other was grazed in the neck and head, but both were able to walk and talk when they were transported to Delray Medical Center, Lake Worth Police Lt. Todd Baer said.

    Police are not sure whether the shooters knew their victims and are not discounting the possibility that the shooting was gang-related.

    The incident occurred shortly after 6 p.m. on J Street and 10th Avenue South, when the two men on foot got into an argument with the occupants of the vehicle, Baer said.

    The men in the car opened fire as their targets tried to run away. The car then fled to Dixie Highway, Baer said.

    Close to 10 shell casings littered J Street and lodged in the small houses that line the block, Baer said. He did not identify the type of weapon, but casings suggested the gun was at least a semi-automatic.

    The gunfire rang out in a neighborhood a block off Dixie Highway that is often host to prostitutes and drug deals, police and residents said.

    Phillippe Jeune, who has an office on the street, said he heard a boom, and then six or seven more in a row. At first, he thought it was an electrical transformer, but was distressed to discover it was gunfire right outside his door.

    "We need more police patrols in Lake Worth," Jeune said. "Something needs to be done here right away."

    Jeune said he will press the issue at the next City Commission meeting.

    "Somebody has to step up and do something," he said.

    Police were interviewing witnesses and the victims, Baer said.
