After shooting at the Ford F-250, he quickly jumped back into his car and sped off. No one was injured during the altercation, but a bullet did strike the truck.
“I heard gunshots, and you know, I’m worried about my 10 month old daughter and bullets flying everywhere it’s scary,” said neighbor Jason Bellows.
One of the bullets pierced the back of the Ford F250 on the passenger’s side.
The victim is still in fear for his life.
He says he initially thought fireworks were going off but later saw the bullet hole on his truck. He says if this was the result of road rage – the suspect had a very short fuse.
“There’s no idea right now as to what caused him to be so enraged that he was in broad daylight take a firearm and shoot several rounds,” said Deanna Garcia from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.
The victim, who didn’t want to speak on camera for fear of retaliation, said he can’t remember sharing a lane with the suspect for more than a quarter of a mile.
He said he was in fact behind the BMW the whole time.
The surveillance video shows the BMW pull into the driveway first with the truck continuing on the road.
Fort Lauderdale Police said they consider this man to be dangerous.
“He fires at the victim pointing a gun without caring for anyone’s safety and gets into vehicle and leaves without caring for anyone’s safety,” Garcia said. “Bullets could have come flying through my window or anyone’s window just because someone was having a bad day – that’s not cool.”
Police believe that the shooting is a case of road rage. Any with information about the shooting is encouraged to call Detective Allen Diamond at 954-828-5539 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
