Police are investigating after a driver was fatally shot on an interstate near downtown Miami late Thursday night.

Florida Highway Patrol officials said the incident took place around 10:30 p.m. in the westbound lanes of Interstate 395 near Biscayne Boulevard.

Officials said the white Range Rover SUV was shot at multiple times.

“Initially, it looks like it started right at the on-ramp," said Miami Police spokeswoman Ofc. Kenia Fallat. "We don’t know what transpired, but we know that there’s possibly another vehicle involved.”

The male driver of that SUV died at the scene. Police did not release his identity. Footage showed the damaged SUV crashed in the highway's median.

Authorities had I-395 closed in both directions Friday morning while they investigated the incident.

“With the assistance of Florida Highway Patrol, we were forced to shut down the expressways," Fallat said. "There were major delays, so since last night until very early today we were still investigating.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami Police or Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers.
