VCSO INVESTIGATING OVERNIGHT SHOOTING OUTSIDE DAYTONA BEACH MOTEL
The Volusia County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that occurred early Sunday at a Daytona Beach motel.
Deputies responded to a 4:26 a.m. call about a person who was shot at the Motel 6 at 2992 W. International Speedway Blvd. A witness said the shooting happened following a confrontation and argument stemming from a traffic incident.
The victim, a 33-year-old man, was riding in a vehicle with two other people when a pair of vehicles cut them off at ISB and Tomoka Farms Road. The vehicles all pulled into the Motel 6 parking lot, where an argument ensued.
The victim's friends said the shooter was part of a group of several males who fled immediately following the shooting. Witness descriptions indicated one was a newer model silver car, possibly a Mazda with Oregon tags, and the other was a blue Infiniti.
Shot once in the left abdomen, the victim's injuries were non-life-threatening. He was conscious, alert and talking before he was transported from the scene to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach.
Sheriff's detectives are investigating and no additional details are available at this time.
