TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The Leon County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a road rage shooting at the Circle K near the intersection of Bannerman and Thomasville Road.

According to deputies, an altercation between drivers led to a vehicle collision followed by shots being fired just across from Target and the Bannerman Crossing Dining District around 5 p.m. Thursday.

LCSO says one person has died and one has been taken into custody.

Officials say there was no impact on the flow of traffic.

The sheriff’s office says it’s too early in the investigation to know where the altercation started, but it ended right behind Circle K’s main store. That’s where a BMW SUV with a shattered passenger side window and a white Prius sat for hours.

Debris and forensics markings were scattered around the vehicles.

“Deputies learned there was some sort of altercation between the two drivers,” LCSO Public Information Officer Angela Green said. “Shots ended up being fired and from there one person was fatally wounded another driver was taken into custody.”

There was a collision involved after the argument but before the shooting. The second driver was questioned by police but not officially named as a suspect.

Deputies have yet to identify the victim.

This is a developing story. WCTV has a reporter on the scene.
