Police told WSVN-TV they are looking into whether shooting is related to a dispute between a tenant and a landlord. Neighbors said Trost had been there to show the home.
“There was a disgruntled tenant who was evicted. He thought that the Realtor, who was showing the home, he thought it was the owner of the house, and she was ambushed. She was sitting in her car,” Donna Smith, who lives in the area, told WPLG.
Trost was from Parkland. A colleague told WSVN-TV she loved her job, while neighbors described her as a married mother of one.
