2 injured in shooting on I-95 in North Miami

NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are searching for the people responsible for a shooting along Interstate 95 in North Miami that sent two people to the hospital.

Multiple agencies responded to the scene of the shooting near Northwest 135th Street, just before 6:30 p.m., Friday.

Officials said a dark colored vehicle opened fire on a blue Ford Mustang that was traveling southbound on the highway with three people inside.

“Black, possibly Toyota approached the vehicle on the side and took several shots at the Mustang,” said Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Joe Sanchez.

The dark colored vehicle then sped away.

Police said the driver and a passenger inside the Mustang were injured. The victims pulled off the interstate and drove to the Pro Energy gas station on Opa-locka Boulevard, where they called for help.

7News cameras captured first responders taking the victims out of the sports car.

The third passenger, who was not injured, was seen talking to FHP troopers at the scene.

Officials said both victims’ injuries were minor. One of the occupants was grazed by a bullet in the back of the head and the other was shot in the leg.

Paramedics transported them to Ryder Trauma Center in good condition.

Late Friday night, 7News cameras captured the Mustang being towed from the gas station as evidence.

Investigators from several departments, including Opa-locka Police, North Miami Police, Miami-Dade Police and FHP, were at the scene.
