MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Georgia man has been charged with firing a weapon at an occupied taxi cab in a popular tourist destination in Florida.

Dontavious Johnson was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, shooting a deadly missile, criminal mischief and resisting an officer without violence for Saturday night’s shooting on Miami Beach.

A police report says Johnson fired multiple shots into the occupied taxi cab, wounding a passenger who got out of the cab and fled on foot.

That victim hadn’t been found as of Sunday.

However, surveillance video caught Johnson chasing another man into a liquor store while pointing the semiautomatic weapon at him.

Johnson fled but was captured by police officers a little while later.

Johnson was in the Miami-Dade Jail on Sunday and couldn’t be reached for comment.
