Man shot and killed attending memorial in Dania Beach

An impromptu gathering to memorialize the life of a friend was interrupted Friday night by the blast of gunfire that claimed a life, authorities said.

Freddie Calloway, 41, died at the scene near the 700 block of Phippen-Waiters Road in Dania Beach, said Gina Carter, a spokeswoman for the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Calloway, of Dania Beach, was among the dozens gathered to commemorate the life and death of Percy Walker, 55, who had died about a week earlier, she said.

Walker’s death and Calloway’s homicide are not related, Carter said.
