BOCA RATON (CBSMiami) — A man driving a sports car on Interstate 95 was shot and killed early Wednesday morning.

Boca Raton Police have identified that man as 29-year-old Edvin Milkevic from Boca Raton.

The shooting happened around 4:30 a.m., when a Florida Highway Patrol unit heard a crash near the Yamato Road exit on I-95 in Boca Raton.

The man’s car had hit a construction barrel, went off the west side of the highway and ended up in a grassy area.

“They responded to the crash scene. When they arrived, they found an individual in the car that was bleeding,” said Mark Economou with the Boca Raton Police Department.

Crews rushed him to the Delray Beach Medical Center where he died from apparent gunshot wounds.

Investigators believe he was driving on I-95 when he was shot.

“We don’t know where he was shot. We believe he was shot on I-95,” said Economou. “We don’t know by who at this point.”

Now investigators are trying to find out where that man was coming from and who he may have encountered that led to the shooting.

The shooting prompted authorities to shut down parts of the interstate for about 4 hours as investigators searched for any possible evidence.

According to Boca Raton Police there is no suspect at this time.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 800-458-8477.
