South Florida man fatally stabbed during traffic dispute

FORT LAUDERDALE — The Broward Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal stabbing that was apparently sparked by a traffic crash.

The Miami Herald reports 20-year-old Keema Gooding died Wednesday evening, hours after the vehicle he was driving was struck by another vehicle.

Deputies say after the crash, Gooding, his girlfriend and some friends confronted the driver of the other car, who Gooding knew. During the argument, the suspect stabbed Gooding in the chest with a knife.

Friends drove Gooding to Plantation General Hospital, where he was stabilized and transferred to Broward Health Medical Center. He died at 2:11 p.m.

Deputies are searching for the suspect. A $1,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest in the case.
