The sheriff’s office says the driver of a white SUV was shot and killed as he was driving eastbound on the I-95 overpass of Gateway Boulevard.

“The car was off the median. The window was smashed,” explained Serge Montejo. “First I thought it was an accident. Then I realized it was something afar.”

The assailant was in the passenger’s seat of a small gray SUV and is described as a dark skinned man with hair pulled back and a thin build.

Witnesses say the grey SUV then headed north on I-95 where there was an encounter with a second vehicle, a dark BMW.

“I hear, ‘pop, pop, pop,’” said Ryan Anderson.

Anderson watched as the shooter opened fire on the BMW, but no one in that vehicle was hurt.

“I think a shell casing hit my window, I am pretty sure,” he said. “I ducked and swerved off the freeway.”

The driver of the BMW pulled over at the Lantana exit of I-95 where sheriff’s deputies responded.

Investigators aren’t saying how the shootings are tied.

If you have any information on either of the incidents, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS.
