Man Randomly Shoots People At Brooksville Intersection

What made him do it? That’s what investigators are trying to figure out.

A man in a pick-up, wearing a cowboy hat, pulled up to an intersection in Brooksville yesterday morning as people were going to work. He stuck a shotgun out the window and started blasting.

Four people wounded and gunshots hit cars and buildings. Police showed up — the man sped-off but traded shots with officers. He finally wrecked his truck, kept shooting — and officers killed him. His name not yet given. Those wounded expected to recover.
