A woman was shot dead Saturday night outside an apartment complex in Dania Beach, detectives say.

Deputies went to the Beach Walk at Sheridan apartments on 321 E. Sheridan St., near SE 3rd Avenue, after a 911 caller reported hearing gunfire shortly before 10:30 p.m., said Miranda Grossman, a spokeswoman for the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies found a woman on the ground bleeding from a gunshot wound, Grossman said. She was transported to Memorial Regional Hospital, where she later died.

The Sheriff’s Office did not release the name of the woman, saying they had not yet notified next of kin.

Homicide detectives are investigating the circumstances that led up to the deadly shooting.
