MIAMI (WSVN) - Police are searching for a shooter who was captured on camera gunning down a man inside his vehicle in a Miami neighborhood.
Detectives have been on the scene along Southwest 27th Lane and 37th Avenue throughout the day investigating.
Surveillance cameras in the area captured the shooter taking aim at a black car and firing his weapon several times. Police said the gunshots caused the victim to crash into a light pole. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
Neighbors said they woke up just after midnight to the sounds of gunshots, Wednesday. “The gunshots were so loud,” said Sarah Sater, who lives nearby. “We were sleeping, so the gunshots woke us up.”
“He was screaming, ‘Somebody’s been shot, somebody’s been shot,'” said Nada Sater, who lives nearby. “Then, the police came, and all we saw was a man sitting in his car, and he appeared to be dead.”
Miami Police crime scene investigators blocked off the roadway, early Wednesday morning.
The black Honda had multiple bullet holes and was towed away from the scene with a yellow tarp covering the driver’s side.
“I’ve never heard gunshots in my life, so it was really scary,” Sarah said.
A candlelight vigil was be held in the area of the fatal incident to remember the victim, at around 7 p.m. Wednesday.
