A dispute over $2 at a food truck in Florida led to the attempted murder of a Miami man, authorities said.
Around 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 2, the victim, whose name has not been released, collapsed in the roadway outside his Chevrolet truck in Boca Raton, WPTV reported.
When the victim, a food truck operator, regained consciousness, he told investigators he sold a $2 drink to a man at a construction site who said he would pay him the following day.
According to the food truck operator, the next day, the man, identified as Eddys Faraminan, 42, accused him of creating drama over the debt but paid him anyway, according to an arrest report.
Following the confrontation, the food truck operator saw the suspect in a “white Cadillac SUV following behind him and felt scared, turned right and drove westbound toward the turnpike," according to the arrest report.
When the suspect passed the victim in the vehicle, they both stopped and they got into an argument.
“The suspect turned abruptly and produced a small pistol in his right hand,” the report stated. “In fear due to the behavior of the suspect, positioned his right arm over his heart as the suspect turned the gun on him. The suspect shot in the right arm, then again in the chest. In fear for his life, opened the driver door and jumped from the vehicle.”
A bullet struck the victim in the back.
Faraminan was arrested on Dec. 8in Miami Gardens. He was booked into the Palm Beach County jail without bond on an attempted first-degree murder with a firearm charge.
The victim is expected to survive.
