Authorities in South Florida have arrested and charged a 40-year-old man with five counts of attempted murder after it was reported that the man had begun a random shooting which left one person in critical condition at the hospital. Witnesses say that he exited his home with a four-pack of beer and a semi-automatic rifle and just started shooting at passing cars.
Persons in Carl Deshon Washington's neighborhood at the 6300 block of Garfield Street in Hollywood, Florida were shocked when they observed the man's actions on Friday and were quick to call the police about the shooting spree he was on. The Sacramento Bee reported that the arrest affidavit for the 40-year-old man indicated that he had caused multiple injuries to five persons with his rifle. The most serious injuries suffered was by Reynoldo Corria, who was struck in the back of the head by one of the bullets and also now has two broken legs, which are suspected to have occurred after the red truck he had been driving ran into a tree when he was shot.
