FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - An investigation is currently underway in Fort Lauderdale after a shooting took place on Interstate 95 at Broward Boulevard following reports of shots fired, just after 11:30 p.m., Wednesday.

Live video footage on Thursday morning revealed a white Mercedes-Benz on the side of the highway with at least three gunshot holes on the driver’s side window and rear side window. Blood could also be seen smeared on the door panel.

“Black SUV pickup truck shot at a white Mercedes-Benz right before Sunrise,” said a dispatcher on a Broadcastify recording.

The owner of the Mercedes-Benz called police and said they were shot in the chest. The driver was then rushed to Broward Health North Medical Center in critical condition.

Officials from the Florida Highway Patrol and the Broward Sheriff’s Office were both on the scene conducting their investigation, which caused northbound lane closures for several hours before the expressway was reopened to traffic.

Investigators said they are now looking for a black pickup truck that was said to have fired the shots.

Details surrounding the shooting incident are limited and authorities are yet to release any further information on what led to the incident or if any arrests have been made.

This is the fifth shooting on I-95 in just a few months.

In February a couple was shot north of Copans Road.

In December, near Oakland Park Boulevard, a man was also shot and hospitalized.

Then, just after Thanksgiving, Ana Estevez, was killed while driving on I-95, near Fort Lauderdale.

In October, a motorcyclist was killed after he was shot in Miami-Dade, near 70 Street.

If you have any information on this shooting, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward of up to $5,000.
