NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - An Uber Eats driver said he’s grateful to be alive after he found himself caught in the middle of a shooting in Northwest Miami-Dade.
Assad Assad said he was picking up food from a nightclub along the 3600 block of Northwest South River Drive when shots rang out, early Sunday morning.
“It was a shootout going on, and a bullet just went through my windshield to the back of the back seat cushion,” he said, “and thank God nothing happened. I got some cuts here and there.”
Assad said he sped away from the scene as quickly as he could and ended up at a nearby Pollo Tropical.
Miami-Dade Police continue to investigate.
