Detectives with the Broward Sheriff's Office are releasing a sketch of a man wanted for shooting a victim several times during an attempted home invasion in Pompano Beach on Sept. 1.
Just before 9:30 p.m., authorities say an unidentified man followed a visitor as he walked to the victim’s home near the 2800 block of North Course Drive. When the victim saw a gun barrel enter through the opening of the doorway, he began to shut the door forcefully on the suspect, according to police.
Despite the victim’s efforts to keep the gunman out, the suspect was able to fire multiple rounds into the home, striking the victim several times.
The victim sustained nonlife-threatening injuries.
Pompano Beach Fire Rescue transported him to Broward Health North. No one else was injured during the incident.
Detectives describe the suspect as a black male, possibly in his late 20s or early 30s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a stocky build and a beard. He was last seen wearing a gray T-shirt with black writing and camouflage shorts or pants.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Eric Versteeg at 954-321-4224.
