A 28-year-old Florida man has been arrested for allegedly targeting and shooting two people in a moving van – causing the vehicle to overturn and crash – and also for “firing a missile” into the truck while both occupants were still inside. Julian Mendes-Wolf was taken into custody on Monday and charged with two counts of attempted first degree premeditated murder with a firearm as well as one count of “firing a missile at an occupied vehicle”, authorities announced.

According to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, around 11 p.m. Thursday, June 1, Mendes-Wolf was “involved in a shooting” on Immokalee Road near Twin Eagles Boulevard. Investigators say Mendes-Wolf “specifically targeted” the two victims who were both shot while inside a black pickup truck.

Mendes-Wolf is currently being held in the Collier County Jail. Records show bail is being held on the attempted murder charges while his bond for firing a missile at an occupied vehicle was set at $250,000.

After Mendes-Wolf began shooting at the two occupants, the truck “tipped over and crashed,” Sheriff Kevin Rambosk said in a Facebook Live video, calling the incident an “act of violence outrageous” which was “insane and deliberate”.
