CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. - Police on Tuesday evening seriously wounded a person they deemed "suspicious," but the exact circumstances of the shooting were not immediately clear, police officials said.

Bike patrol officers were outside 24 Hour Fitness, 9800 W. Atlantic Ave., about 7 p.m. because of several car burglaries reported there earlier in the day, officials said.
