Bicyclist fatally shot on Miami causeway after argument

MIAMI (AP) — Authorities in Florida say they're investigating a fatal shooting that took place on a bridge that links Miami and Key Biscayne and was apparently featured in a Facebook video.

Miami police spokesman Freddie Cruz says a bicyclist was shot Wednesday morning and later died at a hospital. Cruz says they're interviewing a suspect.

The Miami Herald posted a Facebook video that shows a motorcyclist approaching a group of bicyclists on the bridge. An argument begins, and at some point, the video-taking device seems to fall, blocking visuals. But someone can be heard yelling "Dispara, dispara!" Spanish for "Shoot, shoot!"

Cruz says police are investigating whether the shooter and victim knew each other.

The shooting caused heavy backups during the morning rush hour and prompted authorities to shut down the causeway.
