Man found shot in car in Deltona
Deputies launch search for shooter
DELTONA, Fla. – A 35-year-old Deltona man was found shot inside a car early Monday in Volusia County, deputies said.
The victim, whose name has not been released, was found around 3:30 a.m. near Alexander Avenue in Deltona.
Volusia County sheriff's deputies said someone in another vehicle shot into the man's car on Kenmore Street, between Abagail Drive and Alexander Avenue.
The Sheriff's Office said a deputy heading to the scene spotted the victim's car traveling in the other direction. Deputies and an ambulance caught up to the vehicle, and the victim was taken to Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford with non-life-threatening injuries.
A resident said the shooting woke him up.
"I'm really nervous," said Rick Bowling, who has lived in the neighborhood since 1984, where crime is uncommon.
A description of the shooter is not known.
