Fort Lauderdale, Fl Subway Shooting
Two Subway employees are recovering after being shot during an attempted armed robbery late Wednesday night near Fort Lauderdale.
The senseless shooting occurred at approximately 10:37 p.m. at the Subway at 2863 W. Sunrise Blvd. near Fort Lauderdale. Surveillance video shows an unidentified black male entering the restaurant and pointing a gun at the two employees.
Broward Sheriff’s Office robbery detectives said the gunman asked for a $2 sandwich. When the workers told the robber they didn’t have $2 sandwiches, he demanded cash. Even though they complied and opened the register, BSO investigators said the cold gunman shot them for no apparent reason. The suspect fled the store on foot without taking anything. Both victims were transported by Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue to Broward General Medical Center. Fawaz Farid, 17, was treated and released, while Sameer Farooq, 31, remains hospitalized.
