SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – A man is in critical condition after a shooting on the Florida Turnpike late Monday night.

Miami-Dade police responded to reports of a shooting near Southwest 257th Terrace just before midnight. Once officers arrived, they found a man with visible gunshot wounds and an uninjured woman in a vehicle.
