    Miami police are investigating a road rage shooting that happened on Nov. 26 around 11:30 p.m. at the intersection of Northeast 2nd Avenue and 13th Street in Miami.

    According to detectives, two drivers were involved in a car-to-car argument that escalated as they approached a red light at the intersection. Video shows the driver of a black Rolls Royce getting out of his car and approaching the driver of a two-door black Mercedes C-Class.

    The drivers began fist fighting, but as the traffic light turned green, the driver of the Mercedes pulled out a gun and shot the other driver in the chest. The shooter sped off westbound on Northeast 13th Street, turned left onto Northeast 2nd Avenue and then drove west on Northeast 12th Street. The victim went back into his car and called 911.

    Miami Fire Rescue took 34-year-old Edward Zapata to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he underwent emergency surgery for his gunshot wound and is currently listed in stable condition.

    A dog that was injured in a small plane crash Tuesday morning has been released from an animal hospital.

    The pilot and two passengers who were on board the single-engine Cherokee PA-28 remain at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

    Miami-Dade Aviation Department spokesman Greg Chin said the plane departed from Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport at 10:35 a.m., but soon afterward had to land in a nearby body of water.

    A view from Sky 10 showed that the plane was upside down on its roof next to the water near the airport.

    Two men and a woman were airlifted to the hospital.

    The pilot, James Webster, suffered a broken clavicle and nose. The passengers, a couple in their 70s, also suffered broken bones. Webster and Otto Wild remained in fair condition on Wednesday.

    "I want to thank Opa-locka police, (Miami-Dade) County Fire Rescue, Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson (Memorial Hospital) and all the people that came out of the warehouses and helped us get away from the plane that could have exploded," Wild said in a statement Wednesday. "I especially want to thank the fireman who promised to take care of Sugar."

    The woman's identity has not been released.

    Dr. Russell Bishop of Broward Animal Hospital said the dog, a 9-year-old German Shepard-golden retriever mix named Sugar, suffered small cuts and a broken carpal bone.

    Witnesses told Local 10 News that they saw the plane smoking or on fire before it crashed.

    "It was on fire in the air and then it crashed down," witness Kimberly Green said. "Once it hit, the smoke stopped and then the guy with the gray shirt -- he ran to try to get the two other guys out, and then you see the dog run out of the plane … he couldn't get the lady out."

    A few men also witnessed the crash and rushed to help. Jose Batres, who works at a nearby warehouse, told Local 10 News that the woman appeared to suffer the most significant injuries.

    "The husband pulled her from the leg and we go outside and take from the back and put (her) in the grass," he said.

    Authorities said they saw signs of a small fire at the front of the aircraft upon arrival, but firefighters did not have to extinguish any flames.

    The group was on their way to Bimini, where the couple and the pilot both have homes.

    The plane is being towed to Fort Pierce, where the cause of the crash will be investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board.

    It'll be homecoming every week for the new Miami Hurricanes head football coach.

    ESPN confirmed a report by Peter Ariz of Canesinsight.com that former UM quarterback Mark Richt will be the team's next head coach.

    Richt, 55, was the Georgia coach until he was relieved of his duties on Sunday.

    In 15 years on the sidelines for the Bulldogs, Richt led Georgia to two SEC Championships and was twice named the conference's coach of the year.

    Richt will replace Al Golden who was fired on Oct. 25.

    With high profile collegiate jobs open around the country, it appears that the school made a quick move to bring Richt back to his alma mater where he played from 1979-82.

    Manso: Canes hit grand slam with Mark Richt

    On Monday, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that Richt was not interested in returning to Miami, and even questioned whether he would coach next season.

    University of Miami athletics officials would not confirm the reports.

    They're bypassing barricades, ignoring street signs and a lack of pavement.

    Drivers who travel the streets of Miami Beach during Art Basel week will encounter heavier-than-normal traffic, making navigating the city almost impossible.

    "I left the beach and went to Wynwood (in Miami,)" one driver told Local 10 News. "It was even worse."

    The art fairs that bookend the backed-up causeways for the next few days make gridlock growing anyway that much worse.

    Traffic engineers' graphs make visual and numerical what anyone at the wheel already knows.  

    "Traffic on our causeways can go up by as much as 75 percent," Miami Beach transportation director Jose Gonzalez said.

    It's even worse in the neighborhoods.

    "They try to detour from (Interstate) 95 to come through here," resident Jean Marc de Silva said.

    Miami Beach has more than 30 cameras and Wi-Fi data collection during the season -- Halloween to Memorial Day -- that allow for real-time fixes.

    "We make signal timing changes as necessary to increase through-put on our critical intersections, and we have variable message signs," Gonzalez said.

    Still, the roads are in the red. On the Miami side, a population exploded beyond its roads and mass transit is to blame. On the beach side, there are only a few ways in and out. That, combined with road construction and a causeway closed for renovation, will cause real headaches for drivers getting to and from Art Basel.

    A man who was shot in an apparent road rage incident in Miami on Thanksgiving says he only approached the other driver because he thought the driver had sideswiped his car.

    The shooting was reported about 11:30 p.m. Nov. 26 at the intersection of Northeast Second Avenue and 13th Street in Miami.

    According to detectives, two drivers were involved in a car-to-car argument that escalated as they approached a red light at the intersection. Video shows the driver of a black Rolls Royce getting out of his car and approaching the driver of a two-door black Mercedes C-Class.

    The drivers began fist fighting, but as the traffic light turned green, the driver of the Mercedes pulled out a gun and shot the other driver in the chest. The shooter sped off westbound on Northeast 13th Street, turned left onto Northeast 2nd Avenue and then drove west on Northeast 12th Street. The victim, identified only as Edward, 34, went back into his car and called 911.

    Miami Fire-Rescue took Edward to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he underwent emergency surgery for his gunshot wound, which just missed his lungs. He is currently listed in stable condition.

    Detectives said Edward says that he was delivering the Rolls Royce and mistakenly thought the driver of the other car had sideswiped him at a stop light a few blocks away from the shooting.

    Edward claimed he got out of the car and told the other driver, "Hey, you've got to be a little bit more careful." But he said the driver laughed and then shot him.

    Miami police are searching for the shooter, who is described as a Hispanic man in his 20s.

    Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    The FBI raided the Miami offices of Media World, an affiliate of Spanish media giant Imagina Group, Thursday in connection with the FIFA soccer scandal.

    There have been allegations that Media World was one of several sports marketing companies that agreed to pay bribes in the FIFA soccer scandal that broke out over the summer.

    In an indictment, Fabio Tordin is accused of being a go-between from accounts in Miami to banks in other countries.

    Imagina US's attorney Ken Tolle told reporters Thursday that Imagina is cooperating fully with the investigation and said no arrests would be made Thursday.

    Prosecutors said that more than $150 million was paid out in bribes over the past two decades. The news led to the arrests of some top soccer and marketing executives.

    According to Switzerland's Federal Office of Justice, Swiss police arrested acting CONCACAF President Alreado Hawit Thursday morning and FIFA Vice President Juan Angel Napout. Both are accused of accepting millions of dollars in bribes.

    The U.S. Soccer Federation released the following statement after news of the arrests: "Today's events involving individual members of CONCACAF and CONMEBOL in no way pierce the integrity of the rigorous safeguards the United States Soccer Federation required before agreeing to host Copa America Centenario that ensure the tournament is organized and conducted in a way that is open, transparent and above reproach."

    U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lunch also addressed the indictments.

    "The new charges unsealed today highlight corruption schemes principally involving soccer officials in Central and South America and sports marketing companies based in South America and the United States," Lynch said.

    Thursday's arrests follow 14 other indictments against FIFA officials earlier this year.

    "Each of the 16 new defendants is charged with racketeering conspiracy and with other crimes in connection with their sustained abuse as set forth in the indictment of their positions for financial gain," Lynch said.

    Previous raids were also carried out in Switzerland and the CONCACAF headquarters in Miami Beach.

    The scandal forced FIFA President Sepp Platter to resign, but so far, he has not been charged.

    A Broward Sheriff's Office reserve deputy is being hailed a hero after he saved the life of a motorcyclist who had just lost a leg in a crash.

    The crash happened Aug. 31 on McNab Road and 80th Street.

    Andrew Harris, a student at Broward College, was on the bike heading home from work when his life changed forever.

    "A 72-year-old man pulled out in front of me and I had to try to swerve one way, and I ended up swerving in front of him and he ran into me," Harris said. "I flew off the bike, hit my leg on a bus bench and it severed my left leg and two toes on my right foot."

    Harris was bleeding out while onlookers tried to help. One person tried using a belt for a tourniquet, but nothing worked until Deputy Richard Griffin arrived.  

    "I just remember seeing this big burly arm next to me and like a police badge, and I was like, man, help is finally here," Harris said.

    The long-time BSO deputy retired but later joined the reserves in 2011. Griffin just happened to be less than a block away from the crash when the dispatch call went out.

    "I split his pant leg, determined there was no other injury that I could treat, found his femoral artery and pinched his femoral artery off until EMS came," Griffin said.

    "If not for that I probably would've bled out," Harris said.

    Harris was airlifted to a hospital, where he underwent six blood transfusions and six surgeries over the course of more than two months. Now more than three months since the crash, he is continuing with school and getting his life back on track -- something he says he couldn't have done without Griffin.

    "He saved his life and I'm eternally grateful," Harris' mother, Krissy, said.

    Harris said "it's nothing short of a miracle" that Griffin knew what to do.

    "It's a nice feeling," Griffin said.

    Griffin joined the BSO in 1982 and retired as a lieutenant.

    Harris, who rode his motorcycle for two years before the crash, plans to go to Florida Atlantic University next year to major in mechanical engineering. He hopes to one day design prostheses.

    Harris' insurance will not cover his own leg prosthesis, which can cost thousands of dollars.

    A woman with ties to the city of Miami offered to help Overtown families after their loved one was murdered, but some said she helped herself during the process.

    Martha Whisby is a community liaison for the Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency.

    "She come here acting like, 'I want to help this family,' and at the same time you are taking money from us," said an angry Dorothy Ruffin, whose 10-year-old grandson, Marlon Eason, was killed in March.

    Ruffin said Whisby knocked on the door after the murder, identified herself as being with the CRA and wanted to help the family.

    "That was the first time I ever met Martha," Ruffin said.

    Ruffin claims Whisby first offered to get a basketball signed by Marlon's idol Dwayne Wade to give to the team Marlon was playing with when he was shot.

    "She said she knew him," Ruffin said.

    Ruffin then said Whisby persuaded her to hire Whisby's son's production company to shoot memorial videos. It didn't end there.

    "She came here and said, 'My phone was turned off. I needed $75,'" Ruffin said.

    Ruffin said she wound up paying Whisby's phone bill and spending $500 on videos. In addition, she said the Basketball was never signed by Wade.

    "She is using victims like that. I don't think that is right," Ruffin said.

    The family of 16-year-old Richard Hallman has a similar story.

    Hallman was shot and killed the same day as Marlon Eason. Whisby wound up borrowing $1,000 from Hallman's mother, apparently for her mortgage.

    Hallman's mother, Tranell Harris, said Whisby did pay her back.

    Local 10 News' Jeff Weinsier asked Harris why she lent Whisby the money.

    "It was a vulnerable time and I was trying to help someone out," Harris said.

    Wasn't Whisby supposed to be helping Harris out?

    "Right, yes," Harris said.

    Whisby refused to talk to Local 10 News investigative reporter Jeff Weinsier.

    CRA Director Clarence Woods would not do an on camera interview, but said by phone he was aware of the situation after families came in to complain.

    Woods said Whisby received ethics training after the incidents.

    Ruffin called Whisby's conduct a conflict of interest and thinks she should be fired.

    The Southeast Overtown/Park West CRA was created to promote redevelopment in Overtown. It is funded by residents' tax dollars.

    The CRA has a governing board made up of Miami commissioners. Those who work for the CRA have city of Miami E-mail addresses and business cards with the city seal, but are not city of Miami employees.

    Florida International University and University of Miami students were alerted by school officials Thursday afternoon after threats were received by the universities.

    UM's newspaper tweeted that police were called to the university's School of Communications after a student threatened to "shoot up" a class.

    "The safety of our students is of paramount importance," the university said in a statement. "Administration is aware of the matter, and the proper steps to ensure everyone's safety have been taken. There is no current threat to campus."

    Meanwhile, an FIU student took to social media to warn others at the Modesto A. Maidique campus to stay inside because campus police had received some kind of threat.

    FIU later posted a letter on the university's Twitter page saying campus police had received a report that FIU would "be on the news tonight."

    Campus police have not identified who made the comment and school officials said there is "no verifiable or actionable threat."

    "FIU mourns the victims of the recent events that have occurred both at home and abroad," the university said in a statement. "FIU understands the state of heightened sensitivity and alarm that some may feel and how a vague comment can lead to discomfort and concern."

    An FIU representative urged students to continue reporting suspicious activity and said no comment would be "overlooked or taken lightly."

    Police are searching for a man who was caught on surveillance video robbing a Miami gas station.

    The robbery happened Tuesday at the Shell station on Northwest 22nd Avenue.

    According to Miami police, a woman who was working at the cash register said she was dealing with customers when she looked up and saw the man walking toward her with a gun in his hand. He said, "Give me all the money," and took the $400 inside the cash register while pointing the gun at her head.

    The man then pointed the gun at a customer near the cash register and demanded all the money in her pockets. She said that she didn't have anything, so the man put the $400 in his pocket and fled the gas station.

    He was last seen running east on Northwest 28th Street.

    Miami police are searching for a black or Hispanic man who is about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 150-160 pounds. He has a medium brown complexion, a black beard and freckles on his face. He was last seen wearing a black hat with white New York Yankees lettering, a black hoodie, green khaki pants, a white belt and brown Timberland shoes.

    He was carrying a two-tone silver and black handgun, possibly a .45 caliber.

    Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
