ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Two cars were hit by bullets in the area of Ronald Reagan Boulevard and First Street in Altamonte Springs on July 18, according to an offense report from the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.

Cory High, 39, of Lake Mary, told officers he was driving south on Ronald Reagan Boulevard around 8:15 a.m. when his 2004 blue Honda CRV was hit by bullets.

An officer said he could see what appeared to be a bullet hole near the center of the rear door of the Honda.

While the Lake Mary man was talking to an officer, a 50-year-old Winter Springs woman said she was driving her 2019 gray Lexus NX300 just ahead of the Honda.

An investigator at the scene said he could see what appeared to be bullet entrance and exit holes in the top of the roof on the driver's side of the Lexus.

Another officer said he found three bullet casings in the area.

No suspect information has been released at this time.

This is a developing story. We will update this story as more information becomes available.

Cory High told News 6 that he hopes the person responsible is found. 

“The person who actually did it probably has no remorse or accountability or doesn’t really care in my opinion if they are just shooting down the street,” said High. 

High also said that he is counting his blessings that his young children weren’t in the vehicle at the time. 

“I mean they are my everything. That’s kind of the biggest gut punch, what could have happened had my son been in the car, my daughter been in the car,” said High.
