WEST PARK, FL – A verbal altercation on a Broward County Transit bus left a Miami Gardens man dead. According to authorities, shortly before 2 p.m., Sunday, March 21, Broward Regional Communications received a 911 call regarding a shooting that occurred on a Broward County Transit bus near the 3500 block of South State Road 7 in West Park. Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a bus stop in the area and located the victim, Joseph D. Jackson, 42, on the sidewalk suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
Detectives say a preliminary investigation showed Jackson was involved in a brief verbal altercation with a male subject while on a county bus. During the dispute, the subject displayed a handgun and threatened to kill the victim. When the bus stopped, the victim turned to exit the transit bus and was shot multiple times in the back by the subject and fell onto the sidewalk.
The subject then exited the bus and fired additional rounds into the victim before fleeing the scene northbound on foot. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue transported Jackson to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood where he was later pronounced deceased. No other injuries were reported. The investigation continues.
