Officer released from hospital following deadly police-involved shooting

An investigation is ongoing following a deadly officer involved shooting in Hallandale Beach.

The shooting happened on Saturday at a liquor store near Hallandale Beach Boulevard and Three Islands Boulevard.

According to police, officers responded to the Argo restaurant after people reported seeing a man with a knife.
