Miami-Dade police took the shooter into custody before noon Tuesday, but did not release a name or give a motive for the killing, which took place at the southbound ramp from Northwest 95th Street to I-95.
“He got out of the car, approached him and shot at him several times,” said Detective Alvaro Zabaleta, a Miami-Dade police spokesman.
Police did not say how many times the panhandler was shot, though four bullet casings were marked off on the road surrounding the man’s wheelchair. They said the shooter was 27 years old, the dead man, 58.
Tuesday morning, the body remained in the wheelchair, slumped at the waist, his white T-shirt in view whenever a gust of wind rippled the yellow tarp covering his body.[su_sky_ad]
