WEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are looking for a shooter who opened fire on a car on the 836 in West Miami-Dade.
Florida Highway Patrol said someone in a black Toyota started shooting and hit a white Honda on 836 East between the Palmetto Expressway and 72nd Avenue, at around 1 p.m., Monday.
Not long after, a man with a floral shirt and a mask was seen from 7 Skyforce HD talking to a state trooper. And not too far ahead, the Honda with a bullet hole and a flat tire on the passenger side was seen on the side of the road.
Investigators are looking into whether this was a case of road rage.
No injuries were reported, but this is the latest car to be hit by bullets on a South Florida highway in less than two weeks.
On Nov. 20, several shots were fired on Interstate 95 north near 151st Street.
Surveillance footage showed the moment the driver with a gunshot wound drove himself to an urgent care center.
Back on the highway, a dark SUV with the back window shattered was visible from above.
“The driver in the SUV was luckily not struck and did not suffer any injuries,” said Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Alex Camacho.
The 19-year-old driver behind the wheel of the Dodge wasn’t so lucky. He got shot in the shoulder.
Eventually, he was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening while FHP tried to track down the person who pulled the trigger in a white four-door sedan.
“Any individual that discharges a firearm in the middle of I-95 has absolutely no regard for the safety of other motorists,” Camacho said.
Officials are looking for a black Toyota sedan. They said the driver who pulled the trigger on 836 east was last seen wearing a green mask.
If you have any information about the driver of the black Toyota sedan, call police or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
