MIAMI -- A man fired an AK-47 rifle while driving down a Florida highway, damaging at least two passing vehicles, police say.

Miami-Dade Police say the 37-year-old suspect began shooting from inside his burgundy Toyota Corolla at about 1 a.m. Monday as he was driving south on the Palmetto Expressway, CBS Miami reports.

At least two vehicles were struck by bullets.

Miami-Dade Police Officer Dan Ferrin said one victim drove himself to a hospital with a minor head injury due to debris from the shooting. Police said the suspect was grazed by a bullet in the face during the exchange.

GOP suffers surprise defection on Obamacare repeal [News on healthcare front...keep Calling!!!!]

"President Donald Trump dialed up his campaign-trail ally Rep. Billy Long on Monday, after the Missouri Republican announced his decision to vote against the Republican plan to replace Obamacare. The goal was straightforward: Persuade Long to change his mind.

It didn't work. Though Long hails from a deeply conservative district that overwhelmingly backed Trump over Hillary Clinton in November, and Long supported earlier versions of the legislation, the president's entreaties fell short, GOP insiders said.

It was an unexpected blow for House GOP leaders and the White House, who raised expectations over the weekend that they were on the cusp of clinching the votes to pass the legislation. Instead, the scramble for support is still very much on."
