A man was hospitalized after a shooting on Interstate 95 in Miami-Dade Friday morning, officials said.

The shooting happened on I-95 near Northwest 151st Street, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.

Officials said a 19-year-old man was in a grey Dodge that was shot at by someone in a white sedan that fled the scene.

A second vehicle, a blue SUV, was also shot but the driver inside wasn't injured, officials said.

"This was a random shooting. It doesn’t appear that these individuals were targeted and it doesn’t appear that both victims know each other, they were just motorists traveling along the roadway at the time that this individual began to just randomly discharge his firearm," FHP Lt. Alex Camacho said.

The man who was injured in the gunfire went to an urgent care off Biscayne Boulevard and Northwest 125th Street, before being transferred to Aventura Hospital. He was expected to survive after being hit in the shoulder.
