Original Story

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue and Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office responded to Oconnor’s pub in west Boca Raton late last night for a shooting call. Upon arrival, PBCFR staged until the all clear was provided by PBSO. Shortly after that, one male victim was reported to have non-life-threatening injuries from a gunshot wound to his left hand.

It is reported that an off-duty deputy was already on scene at the time of the medical dispatch.  It is also unclear at this time if the off-duty deputy was involved in the shooting. We are unaware of any arrests at this time. We will provide more details as follow up with PBSO later this morning.

The late night shooting call was received by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue at 1:29am. The 23 year old male victim was transported to Delray Medical Center as a trauma alert at 1:49am.
