One Dead in South Florida Roadside Attack

Authorities are searching for the person or persons involved in a roadside attack early Sunday morning, which left one man dead and his brother wounded.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's authorities say two Pahokee men were shot while sitting in the back seat of a car that was stopped around 3am at a Belle Glade intersection.

Deputies say a Chevy Astro Van stopped next to the car, and someone with a gun opened its side door and fired into the back seat.

The driver tried to drive the two victims to a hospital, but lost control of the car and hit a curb. When fire rescue arrived, they found 24 year old Antonio Richards shot to death and 20 year old Winston Pinto shot in the arm.

The driver and a fourth passenger were not injured.

Police think an altercation earlier at a bar may have contributed to the shooting.
