Less than two hours after opening fire on a woman's car during a road-rage incident on Thursday morning, an 18-year-old gunman was apprehended.
Around six in the morning, a woman who was driving came upon a reckless driver who had no headlights on.
Because of the car's irregular driving, another vehicle had to move onto the shoulder to make room for it to pass. The unstable motorist then attempted to pass the woman's vehicle but hit her rear bumper instead.
The suspect then followed the victim's SUV for a while before firing fire from the driver's window, according to a statement from the sheriff's office.
The woman's automobile was shot at a total of seven times. No harm was done to the woman.
Within 20 to 30 minutes of the incident, detectives located a suspect using "licence plate scanner technology" and were in front of his home.
Holmes said that the woman had rear-ended him after cutting him off in traffic. He also claimed to have shot several rounds into the car in an effort to disable it by hitting the tyres.
He was accused of shooting into an inhabited vehicle, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, discharging a handgun from a moving vehicle, and having a hidden weapon while under the age of 24. With a $40,000 bond, he was taken to the Volusia County Branch Jail.
