BOCA RATON, Fla. - A man was fatally shot inside his car early Wednesday on Interstate 95 in Boca Raton, police said.

The shooting was reported about 4:30 a.m. after a construction crew heard a crash and found the man bleeding in his car, Boca Raton police spokesman Mark Economou said.

Edvin Milkevic, 29, was shot at least once and was taken to Delray Medical Center in Delray Beach, where he was pronounced dead.

Economou said police believe Milkevic was shot while driving on I-95.

"We don't know by who at this point," Economou said. "We don't know where he was coming from. It's all part of the investigation."

Economou said police don't believe the victim's car was traveling at a fast speed when it crashed into a traffic barrel and came to a rest in the grassy shoulder. 

Southbound lanes of I-95 were closed between Linton Boulevard in Delray Beach and Yamato Road in Boca Raton for several hours during the homicide investigation. The lanes reopened shortly before 9 a.m.
