DELTONA, Fla. – A man was shot by someone driving by as he was sitting outside his home on Lawrence Avenue in Deltona Saturday night, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.

The shooter fired multiple rounds at Rashadd J. Griffin, 29, striking him once in the abdomen. A witness who heard Griffin yelling for help wrapped him in a towel and drove him to Florida Hospital Fish Memorial in Orange City.

Shots were again fired at Griffin's home about four hours later, deputies said. Bullet holes were found near the front door, inside the house and in a couch.

The shooting is under investigation.
