SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A man recorded himself unloading a firearm from inside a speeding luxury sports car on a South Florida highway, potentially putting people’s lives at risk, and the startling footage was posted to Instagram.
The man in question was a passenger in a Lamborghini when he decided to pull out the firearm and start firing out the window along the Palmetto Expressway.
He popped multiple rounds into the air as they were headed down a highway.
Another video showed the driver of the Lamborghini as he reached speeds of up to 111 mph.
7News on Friday showed the disturbing clips to residents in Southwest Miami-Dade.
“That’s totally crazy. I’m a gun owner, and I would never do that,” said George Nariznis.
“I personally am not a big fan of guns, and seeing them and seeing people shooting things, it just freaks me out,” said Kyra Nariznis.
It is unclear exactly where on the Palmetto the man discharged his firearm, but it appeared it was during a night out partying for him and his friends.
They also shared videos of them at bars before and after firing the shots as Instagram stories.
7News also showed the videos to people at Tropical Park.
“Oh, my gosh,” said area resident Victoria Rodriguez.
“Oh, he trippin’,” said area resident Dajon Clark.
“I think it’s very unsafe because anyone could have been driving on those streets,” said area resident Sebastian Prada.
This is not the first time 7News has reported shots fired on area highways. Radio transmissions captured a 911 dispatcher informing first responders of a shooting along Interstate 95.
“Reference a shooting, I-95 northbound. Just be advised, anonymous caller is advising there’s a BMW on the side of the roadway shot up,” said the dispatcher.
Some shootings, sadly, have turned deadly, like one along the southbound lanes of I-95 near 69th Street.
“You don’t know what’s going to happen when you’re just randomly shooting a gun out the window,” said Rodriguez. “You could hit anyone, anything.”
“You’re not caring about nobody’s lives. Those bullets, they go somewhere,” said Clark.
Fortunately, as of Friday night, there have been no reports of injuries in connection to the shots fired from the Lamborghini.
The videos were shared on social media, early Friday morning.
“You can’t just do it for the ‘Gram, and it makes it OK,” said Rodriguez.
A spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol said they are aware of the incident, and they are investigating.
