NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- A shooting suspect led police on a wild chase after the driver fled the scene of a fatal shooting in Northwest Miami-Dade, Tuesday.
At around 9:30 a.m., Miami-Dade Police and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded to reports of a shooting in the area of Northwest Seventh Avenue and 95th Street in Northwest Miami-Dade.
According to police, the victim was sitting in his wheelchair when he was shot. The victim is described as an older man who had been seen in the area asking for money. Authorities said a black male with a red shirt was seen leaving the scene in a gold Chevy.
A man who was driving nearby the shooting scene described the moments after the shooting. "I honked the horn, you know, and the car didn't move and a woman opened the door and told me there was a shooting, but I didn't understand exactly what was going on," said the witness. "When that car moved I saw another car parked right there on 95th Street, and I think that was the car involved with the shooting."
The motive for the shooting remains unknown.
Police units in the area spotted the vehicle and began to follow the car near Northeast Sixth Avenue and 55th Street. The suspect led police on a chase throughout the City of Miami and other parts of the county.
During the pursuit the driver hit a car at the intersection of Northwest 82nd Street and North Miami Avenue. "He swerved to the inside of me, hit my rear-door panel on the driver's side, tire is flattened," said the driver, who wished to remain anonymous. "The other police car, unmarked car, swerved and avoided me, and I pulled into a strip mall here."
Police eventually took the suspect into custody after the man crashed into a second vehicle and struck a barrier on the northbound lanes of Interstate 95, just past the Miami Gardens Drive exit. The suspect could be seen crawling out of the passenger's door and surrendering to police.
The driver of the second vehicle was injured and treated by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue on the scene.
As of 12:30 p.m., police activity continues on the I-95 south ramp, from Northwest 95th Street. Officials have closed the ramp. There is heavy congestion along the northbound and southbound lanes of I-95, near the scene of the crash, which is blocking two northbound lanes.
