Sitting in traffic on the turnpike and a man with a gun just walked by our car.. Not good

From the Miami Herald:

“He(the shooter) and I made eye contact, and he looked like he was up to no good,” Hayes said. “Something was very wrong. I just had a very bad feeling. My wife and I were in shock. I told her ‘Do not look at him.’ He was walking like he was walking down the street. It was really creepy. but his face … it was pretty scary to be honest with you.”

Shortly after the man passed their car, Hayes said a law enforcement officer wearing a bulletproof vest came walking past with gun drawn. After traffic began moving, Hayes said he turned on the radio and heard that officers had been shot.

“My wife and I said a big, long prayer for them,” Hayes said.
