FORT LAUDERDALE -- All southbound lanes of Interstate 95 at Sample Road have reopened Thursday morning following an overnight shooting in Pompano Beach that sent one man to the hospital and led to lane closures that lasted for nearly four hours.

The man, who was not identified, was rushed to a local hospital for treatment, where he was listed in serious condition. A woman who was in the vehicle with him was not hurt according to a written statement from the sheriff's office.

Information about his condition was pending.

Detectives said they were still searching for the person who opened fire on the pair.

Authorities did not immediately say what led to the shooting or if anyone has been arrested in connection with the incident.

A tow truck arrived on the scene around 6 a.m. and towed a gray Tesla that had extensive front end damage.

The lane closures had extended from Sample Road to Copans Road before they reopened.

There was an extensive traffic back-up while the lanes were closed.

Anyone with information about the accident was asked to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
