Bicyclist shot on Miami causeway after argument

Sponsored by:

MIAMI — Officials in Florida say they’re investigating a shooting that took place on a bridge that links Miami and Key Biscayne and was apparently featured in a Facebook video.

Miami police spokesman Freddie Cruz says a bicyclist was shot Wednesday morning, and he’s is in extremely critical condition. Cruz says they’re interviewing a suspect.

The Miami Herald posted a Facebook video that shows a motorcyclist approaching a group of bicyclists on the bridge. An argument begins and at some point the video-taking device seemed to have fallen, blocking visuals. But someone can be heard yelling “dispara dispara,” Spanish for “shoot shoot.”

Cruz says he can’t confirm whether the motorcyclist is the shooter or whether he’s talking to investigators.

The shooting caused heavy backups during the morning rush hour and forced the causeway to be shut down .
