Irate man fires shots at customer in store parking lot

An irate customer let his frustration turn to anger when he fired at a fellow convenience store customer last month, police said.

The man, seen in surveillance images wearing a red hat and red shirt, pulled a pistol and fired several rounds in the parking lot of a package store in the 4500 block of Campbellton Road on Feb. 23, police said.

The shots fired incident followed a minutes-long verbal fight with a man in line, who was paying for his items, police said.

When the victim decided to leave the area, the suspect was still so upset that he pulled a handgun from his waistband and shot at the victim as he attempted to leave the area.

The suspect then got in a red Corvette and drove away.

Police did not say any of the shots struck the victim.
