Man killed after shots fired in possible Bloomingdale road-rage incident

A man has died after being shot at least once in what investigators believe was a road-rage incident that occurred on Bloomingdale Avenue Friday evening.

Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies were called to the area at about 6:30 after reports of shots fired.

Deputies said the man who was shot got out of his car at Bloomingdale Avenue near Kings Avenue, where he walked back to the shooter's vehicle. It appeared the two had an earlier dispute moments prior, officials said. Shots were fired after the two exchanged words, and the man who had gotten out of his car was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Officials said the shooter waited for law enforcement to arrive and is being cooperative.

Deputies have not released the identity of the dead man.
