OAKLAND PARK — Detectives are investigating a fatal shooting that has shut down a stretch of Interstate 95 in South Florida.
The Broward Sheriff's Office reports the shooting happened at about 6:40 a.m. today.
BSO spokeswoman Dani Moschella says the driver of a silver Buick was shot and then hit a guardrail on the southbound entrance ramp of the I-95 at Commercial Boulevard, about five miles north of Fort Lauderdale. The vehicle then caught fire.
Deputies and firefighters responded to the scene and extinguished the blaze. The driver was found dead inside.
All southbound lanes of the I-95 at Commercial Boulevard have been closed as police investigate the homicide.
Investigators say the shooting may have stemmed from an incident at a nearby Waffle House.
