MIAMI (WSVN) - Police are investigating after a man was found with a gunshot wound under an overpass in Miami.
Cell phone video from neighbors released late Friday night show the car burning in the distance and officers hovering over a man who was believed to be inside the vehicle.
Crime scene tape draped the street near where Jacqueline Cooney power washes a home, early Friday morning.
On the other side of the Miami PD tape was a shell of a car, that police said caught on fire when gun fire hit it and the driver inside.
7News cameras captured a charred vehicle underneath an overpass along Northwest 10th Avenue and 38th Street.
“Engine 6 respond traffic accident with injuries on Northwest 10th Avenue and 40th Street under the 112,” said a dispatcher.
“Please advise that the vehicle in this accident is now on fire,” said another dispatcher.
Authorities said they found a man with a gunshot wound near the burnt car at around 4 a.m., after they originally responded to a possible crash with injuries.
“That’s scary because why was he shot? Was it road rage? Was it he knew the person? It’s a lot going on, so it’s more you just don’t know. Did he cut somebody off? So it’s kind of, it’s very scary,” said Cooney.
Cooney, who knows the area, said something like this happens too often.
“You gotta remember, it’s not like we’re in the Mores or Pembroke Pines, this is normal for us, so when you hear shots or cars speeding, nobody jumps to look out the window, because this is our norm,” said Cooney.
The man was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital in critical condition.
