FBI needs help identifying Turnpike gunman

HOLLYWOOD, FL (WFLX) - The FBI has released photos of the man, it says, was involved in the shooting of two law enforcement officers Thursday on the Turnpike in Hollywood.

The photos were taken during an armed robbery at a barber shop in Pembroke Pines earlier in the day.
Key Biscayne Officer Nelia Real was one of the two officers shot during a confrontation with the man. She is 'doing good', a fellow officer said on Friday.

Fellow officers are being told Real remains in critical but stable condition.

A spokesman with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said an agent was also shot, but his injuries are not life threatening. He was identified as Assistant Field Office Director Gabriel Martinez. The 10-year veteran is listed in stable condition at Memorial Regional Hospital.

Shortly after the reported shootings, a Broward Sheriff's deputy based in Dania Beach began rushing to the area but got into an accident on Interstate-95 near the Sheridan Street exit, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Leljedal.

The Broward deputy suffered a broken leg and was expected to recover.

Anyone with information as to the identity of the man pictured is urged to contact the FBI in Miami at 305-944-9101.
The agency is also asking anyone who saw any of the events involving the man, including pictures or video of the incidents, to contact the FBI, as well.
