COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (AP) _ A student was fatally shot Friday during what police described as a domestic dispute in the parking lot of a technical school near Fort Lauderdale.
Annette Arteaga, a 22-year-old business student at Atlantic Technical Center, died at a hospital, police said.
Arteaga had been the victim of a stalker and had special parking privileges, said Kirk Englehardt, spokesman for the Broward County Public Schools.
A guard usually walked her from the parking lot into the school, but did not meet her Friday because she was an hour late, Englehardt said.
Englehardt said the suspect isn’t a student at Atlantic. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office said it was looking for her former boyfriend for questioning.
Atlantic Technical Center is a public post-secondary school with more than 4,800 students. Coconut Creek is 13 miles north of Fort Lauderdale.
