FHP: Enraged driver fires shots at other car

TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The Florida Highway Patrol says it's investigating a Tampa road rage incident that ended with one driver firing a gun.

Troopers said it happened around 8 p.m. Tuesday night between Fletcher and Bearss on I-275.

Hector Rosina, 19, said he accidentally cut off a Cadillac GTS as he was changing northbound lanes. The enraged driver allegedly tailgated him, sped around, and then exchanged "angry hand gestures."

But it didn't end there, FHP troopers said.

Apparently two gunshots then came from the Cadillac, one hitting Rosina's vehicle.

The driver is only described as a black male, and if you have any information about this incident, authorities ask that you call (800) 873-TIPS.
