An officer tried to approach a vehicle reportedly involved in a hit-and-run on Wyles Road in Coral Springs.
The suspect in the car fled and left the Coral Springs jurisdiction, heading eastbound on Sample Road.
At 1:51 pm, officers stopped pursuit per department policy, since it was only property damage.
They then dispatched information to other agencies in the area.
That same vehicle and suspect were tied to a crash and shooting at Powerline Road and West Sample Road. The victim at that scene who was shot was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
While the second scene unfolded, Coral Springs officers went to the residence tied to the vehicle, waiting for the alleged suspect, but the suspect was arrested in Cococunt Creek at around 2:50.
