Margate man identified as victim of fatal pre-Thanksgiving shooting in Tamarac as detectives seek a suspect

A young Margate man has been identified by the Broward Sheriff’s Office as the person who was shot to death in Tamarac the night before Thanksgiving. Homicide detectives are still looking for the assailant.

Mateo Delgado, 21, was found by deputies late Wednesday evening suffering from a gunshot wound after a 911 call about shots fired near the 7000 block of Northwest 79th Avenue, just west of University Drive, the sheriff’s office said in a statement. The incident occurred outside a gate of the Bonaire Woodmont residential community.

Paramedics from Tamarac Fire Rescue pronounced Delgado dead at the scene, the statement said. “The preliminary investigation revealed Delgado was inside a vehicle when he was shot. He drove away crashing into a nearby pole.”

Detectives have yet to find the person responsible for the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Ryan Schnakenberg at 954-321-4274 or submit a tip through the SaferWatch App. Those who wish to remain anonymous may contact Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477), online at browardcrimestoppers.org, or dial **TIPS (8477) from any cellphone in the U.S.
