(WSVN) — NEAR FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Officials are investigating the death of a man who allegedly broke into a victim’s house, Wednesday morning.
According to Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives, 51-year-old Gary Peterson was armed and wearing a mask when he tried to force his way into the victim’s home, located at 530 N.W. 30th Terrace, around 3:30 a.m. Witnesses said they saw Peterson wearing dark clothes and holding what looked like a firearm.
The victim and resident, officials said, argued with Peterson and a struggle ensued shortly after and Peterson eventually forced his way inside the house. “There’s no information right now that leads us to think they knew each other,” said Broward Sheriff’s Officer Gina Carter.
