Police: Gun-toting Florida man with six-pack of beer fires at passing cars

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Police say a man in Florida carrying a rifle and a six-pack of beer stationed himself at an intersection and opened fire at passing cars, hitting one driver in the head.

Hollywood police tell news outlets that 40-year-old Carl Washington was arrested on five counts of attempted premeditated murder after he repeatedly shot at five people with a rifle as they drove past him Saturday morning.

Witnesses told police Washington walked out of his home carrying the gun and the pack of beer, went to an intersection, sat the beer down and then opened fire.

Police say among those fired upon was driver Reynaldo Corria, who was shot in the head and crashed. He was taken to the hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

It’s unclear whether Washington has an attorney.
