A 22-year-old man is the Sweetwater shooter

Sweetwater, Florida – According to the Police, a 22-year-old Eduardo Pastrana, is the person who shot a man in Sweetwater.
On Thursday afternoon Sweetwater police say the victim stepped out of a white pickup truck before he was shot in the lower body around 2 p.m. in the area of Southwest 108th Avenue and 5th Street.
According to the arrest report, the victim was shot five times in the lower body but he is in stable condition after being taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center.
“A white pickup truck pulled over to the side of the road. At that point, another vehicle pulled up behind him and as the victim stepped out of the vehicle he was fired upon,” said Jonathan Arche of the Sweetwater Police Department.
According to investigators, Pastrana, of Southwest Miami-Dade County, fled from responding officers but he was later tracked down with the help of a witness who was working on a roof.
Pastrana faces charges of attempted felony murder with a firearm and fleeing the scene of a crash with serious bodily injury.
The victim told police that he has known Pastrana for about a year and identified him as the gunman, according to the arrest report.
At this time it is not clear what the reason for the shooting was.
“If someone violates the law this carelessly, we are going to make sure we catch them and bring them to justice,” Arche said.
Anyone with additional information about the shooting is asked to call Sweetwater police at 305-552-9900.
