Argument leads to shootout on I-95

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – An argument early Tuesday morning escalated into gunfire on Interstate 95 and cars intentionally crashing into each other.

Sgt. Matthew Clements with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said it started around 1:40 a.m. with a dispute between three adult men off Golfair Boulevard.

Clements could not say what the dispute was over, but he explained that it spilled onto the southbound lanes of Interstate 95.

The men were in two separate cars, a 2014 Silver Chevrolet Traverse and a 2002 white Chevrolet Impala, and were reportedly crashing into each other and firing shots over the course of approximately five miles.

Clements said it all came to an end near the 8th Street exit once the cars could not go any farther due to damage.

Currently, all three men are in police custody. At that point, authorities arrived and shut down all southbound lanes of the interstate from 8th Street to Lem Turner Road to begin their investigation.

Police say 25-year-old Santonio Leonard Graham was treated for non-life threatening gunshot wounds, while another suffered non-life threatening injuries related to the crash.

Sgt. Clements would not comment on if the violence could be related to a string of shootings in Jacksonville over the last few days.
