Witnesses told police that Haneef Young didn’t get his man and didn’t wait around Saturday when he fired five shots from his car on Miami Beach’s 12th Street.
Never miss a local story.
Miami Beach police waited around Young’s Miami Gardens residence and believe they did get their man Monday night when they arrested Young in the shooting that hit a bystander in the hand.
Young sits in Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, facing one count of aggravated battery with a firearm (no bond) and one count of discharging a firearm from a vehicle ($7,500 bond).
Witnesses told police the shooting, which occurred on 12th Street between Collins Avenue and Washington Avenue at 6:45 p.m., climaxed an argument that began between Young and another man on Ocean Drive.
Young went back to 11th Street where a car was parked and got in the passenger side, police said. The car rolled west to Washington, north to 12th and turned right on 12th.
After spotting the man with whom he apparently had a beef, the five-nine, 160-pound Young slid his upper body out of the passenger window to fire across the car at the man.
None of the bullets found the target. One found the hand of a bystander, who was taken to Ryder Trauma Center.
Young was sentenced to 10 months anger management and community service after pleading no contest to a 2013 misdemeanor battery charge.
