Tampa police released surveillance video yesterday of man who they say instigated a fight at a South Tampa station before drawing a gun on the victim.
The video shows the man standing inside the store at the counter when a younger man walks inside. Detectives said the man started to make comments on the younger man’s driving, however, the younger man had no idea what he was talking about. The man then starts to verbally abuse the younger man and then shoves him, detectives said.
The video shows the younger man fights back and wrestles the man to the ground, which is when the man draws his pistol.
Detectives said the man followed the younger man out of the store where he tried to hold him at gunpoint. He ordered the young man to the ground, hit him in the head and smashed a taillight on his car.
Police are offering a $1,000 reward for information that helps find the suspect. They said they want to identify him and hear his side of the story.
