    What to Know

    • An early morning shooting on the Palmetto Expressway led to one person being hospitalized and police investigating if this was road rage.

    An early-morning shooting on the Palmetto Expressway led to one person being hospitalized while police investigate if this was a case of road rage.

    Police say a Lamborghini was traveling northbound from Flagler Street, trying to get onto State Road 836 eastbound around 1:30 a.m. Thursday when someone shot at the vehicle.

    In a statement to FHP troopers, the driver said a white SUV drove on the left shoulder of the on-ramp and began shooting. He said there were between three and five shots fired, but because glass from a shattered window went into his eyes, he was unable to get a view of the shooter or car.

    The driver took himself and his girlfriend to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where police set up a perimeter around the vehicle. The driver sustained injuries to his eyes from the broken glass, but his girlfriend was unhurt.
