MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade police are investigating an incident in which a woman was videotaped allegedly shooting a man inside a parked car, while her young son is inside the vehicle.
The cell phone video posted on Instagram Thursday shows a woman with green hair driving to Flea Market USA on NW 79th Street purportedly to retrieve her son who is, she says, with his father and another woman.
The profanity-laced video shows the woman getting out of her car and confronting a man at gunpoint who is in another car.
A woman apparently jumped from the other car in fear.
After delivering a curse-filled tirade at the man behind the wheel of the car the woman fires what appears to be a round from a semi-automatic pistol and, moments later, removes a young boy from the backseat of the car, puts him in her car, gets in and takes off.
Her friend shooting with the cell phone tells her to hurry.
There is serious question as to whether the video is real or a hoax. Miami-Dade Police tell CBS4 News they are investigating it as a probable fake.
But even if it is all staged and doctored, and a real gun was not used, a crime may still come into play because a child was involved.
Friday afternoon, a woman claiming to be the woman with green hair in the video, but wearing a red wig this time, claimed in an Instagram post that police were threatening her with taking her children away if she didn’t prove the man she “shot” at was alive. She said it was all a fake.
Det. Chris Thomas, a Miami-Dade Police spokesman, declined to comment on the latest post.
Police continue to investigate.
