FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - The Broward Sheriff’s Office has released new details about a shooting on Interstate 95 over the weekend.
Deputies have released a sketch of the gunman involved in a shooting that took place on the southbound lanes of I-95, Sunday night.
Detectives believe the gunman was involved in a shooting that happened along the road between Sample Road and Atlantic Boulevard.
A girl in another car was shot and taken to the hospital by her father.
Authorities discovered the shooter drove a newer model white i8 BMW. The car is said to possibly have damage on the passenger side, maybe even missing the side mirror.
The Office of Violent Crimes investigated the incident after the gunman sideswiped a black Nissan Sentra along the southbound lanes between Sunrise and Broward boulevards.
“Which unfortunately then escalated to violence,” said Miranda Grossman, a spokesperson for BSO. “The driver of the BMW shot at the two people in the Nissan Sentra.”
Two victims, a man and woman said to be in their 30s, told police the man pulled out a gun, began shooting at them and struck both of them.
All victims were transported to the hospital.
The girl and man are both expected to be OK; the woman remains in critical condition at Broward Health Medical Center as she experienced life-threatening injuries.
“At this point, detectives are searching for a white BMW– not sure about the damage,” said Grossman. “He did sideswipe this Nissan Sentra, so perhaps there is damage on the white BMW but they really need people to help find this guy. If you were driving on I-95 southbound Sunday night, between 8 o’clock- 9 o’clock, if you saw that, have a picture or video … send along this information. We really need to find the driver of this BMW, so he doesn’t do it again.”
If you have any information on this shooting or the whereabouts of the driver of the BMW, call Fort Lauderdale Police or 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.
