Miami Road Rage Shooting Caught on Camera

Miami Police are investigating a road rage incident that took place on Nov. 26.

It happened at approximately 11:30 p.m. at the intersection of Northeast 2nd Avenue and 13th Street where a man was shot.  

According to detectives, an earlier car-to-car argument escalated as both drivers approached a red traffic light at the intersection. It appears the driver of a black Rolls-Royce exited the vehicle, approached the driver of a two-door black Mercedes C-Class and continued arguing.

Both parties began fist fighting, but as the traffic light turned green, the driver of the Mercedes drew a firearm, pointed it at the victim and shot him, striking him in the chest.

Police said the shooter sped off westbound on Northeast 13th Street.

Miami Fire Rescue transported the victim, 34-year-old Edward Zapata, to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center where he underwent emergency surgery and was listed in stable condition. 

Miami Police are in search of the shooter who is described as a white Hispanic male in his 20s.

For now, police said the motive appears to be road rage that apparently may have stemmed between both parties before they approached the traffic light.
