SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A road rage incident ended in gunfire and left one man shot in Southwest Miami-Dade.
Three men who work for Two Men and a Truck moving company were on the job when another driver ran a stop sign near Southwest 244th Street and 209th Avenue, Friday afternoon.
That’s when the driver opened fire in a fit of road rage and hit one of the workers who was driving the moving truck. “We was on the way to our job, trying to do the right thing and the guy ran the stop sign and he’s flicking us off and all that. And all we did was beep the horn at him,” said one of the victim’s co-workers, Telaysis Lee. “We tried to keep going but he followed us and fired off a shot at us.”
The victim’s co-workers tried to keep him calm as paramedics rushed to the scene. He could be seen on the ground holding a shirt to his face.
The victim was airlifted to Jackson South, where Lee said he is OK.
Lee said the shooter waited for them before taking aim. “At first when he sped by us, and then he parked the truck and as we were coming through the next stop sign he was parked and he aimed and shot at the window and shot my friend while he was driving,” he said.
“The guy just turned the truck and followed our truck,” said Jeffrey Mesa, the victim’s other co-worker. “In that moment, he just shot my friend.”
“I’m speechless right now. I don’t even know. I’m at a loss for words. I’m just hoping the best for my friend,” Lee said.
The victim’s co-workers remained on the scene hours later.
Two Men and a Truck released a statement saying they were shocked at the situation and are hoping for the best possible outcome.
The victim remains at the hospital, Friday evening.
Police said the shooter was driving a white box truck.
