An 83-year-old man is facing an attempted murder charge in Miami after an apparent case of road rage led to shots being fired Friday afternoon.
According to Miami Police, Mario Perez-Tano, 83, was stopped at a traffic light in his red Volkswagen Beetle at the intersection of NW 12th Avenue and 7th Street in Miami. Another driver in a white Acura was going the same direction as Perez-Tano and tried to get in front of Perez-Tano’s car.
Police said Perez-Tano blocked the other car and then got out of his vehicle with a .38 caliber handgun and shot at the Acura. The bullet went through the driver’s side window and grazed the driver on the arm.
Miami Police said the Acura tried to drive away from the scene and Perez-Tano took several shots at the car. Police stopped Perez-Tano and found the gun on his waistband. He was taken to the Dade County Jail on one count of attempted murder.
