(WEST PALM BEACH, FLA) — West Palm Beach police say a man was shot and killed execution-style inside a vehicle last night in a “targeted attack” around 9 p.m. at the Parkside Residences on Haverhill Road, just west of Military Trail.
Police said the victim, a 36-year-old man, was driving a SUV near the complex’s clubhouse when a gunman suddenly opened fire.
According to the PIO for the West Palm Beach Police Department, Mike Jachles, “The victim was able to drive a short distance, probably 30 to 50 yards, before crashing into a pole. The shooter then continued on, basically executing the victim. He walked up and shot him repeatedly through the passenger side.”
The shooter fled on foot into the apartment complex, and is still at large as of Wednesday morning.
Even though the shooting was brazen, bold and violent hit, police say there’s “no danger to the general public.”
