Interstate I-95 has been the scene of many shootings in the past 15 years:
Feb. 21, 1995: Benigno Carrero, 47, was shot twice in the head by someone in a dark blue Ford Crown Victoria just south of Hillsboro Boulevard, and Carrero's van ran into a fence and trees just off the highway. Carrero died an hour later. William Ramos, whose wife was having an affair with Carrero, was convicted of manslaughter with a gun.
March 23, 1996: Jose Angel Ortiz, 22, and Maria Bothwell, 20, were shot and wounded as they drove home from a nightclub, northbound on I-95 near Hallandale Beach Boulevard. Later Bothwell's boyfiend, Victor Manuel Franco, 19, who had followed them from the club, was charged in the shooting.
April 13, 1997: In the northbound lanes of I-95 south of State Road 84, Christopher Dambrosio, 39, was shot. Deputies said Eduardo "Eddie" Ruiz, 33, was driving the car that chased Dambrosio after he and John W. Cappelletti, 53, got into a fight about money outside a Hollywood gas station. Dambrosio left in his car and Cappelletti and Ruiz left in another, following him onto I-95 northbound. As Ruiz drove, Cappelletti shot at Dambrosio, hitting him in the neck, detectives said. Dambrosio recovered.
