Deputies Seek Suspect in Lutz Road Rage Shooting

Lutz, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Deputies search for the man they shot two people in a road rage Friday night, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said.

Luis Ramund Brito, 49, injured the two when he fired a shotgun at their car after the driver flashed their lights at him, deputies said.

A woman at a four-way stop at Lake Como and Moss Branch with a man riding with her noticed another car at the intersection with its lights off, deputies said. She flashed her lights to let the other driver know that. When the cars proceeded through the intersection, Brito fired the shotgun into the victims' car.

The PCSO declined to name the victims, but said the woman driving suffered only a minor wound, but man suffered serious injuries from a blast to his face, though they aren't considered life-threatening, according to a news release from the PCSO.

Brito drove a 2006 white Chrysler 300 at the time. Deputies describe him as a Hispanic male, 5'7" tall, 177 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Deputies consider him armed and dangerous and ask anyone who sees him to call 911.
