Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Deputies have arrested a man on Friday for shooting at a motorist during a road rage incident on Thursday afternoon in Riverview.  
 

Authorities have charged 24-year-old James Reynolds Jr. of Riverview with shooting into an occupied vehicle.

Investigators say Reynolds Sr. called his son and told him what had happened. Meanwhile detectives say Gritzinger got back in his vehicle and drove east on Rhodine Road. They say when he approached the intersection of Rhodine Road and Balm Riverview Road, Reynolds Jr. was waiting for him.

Detectives say Reynolds fired multiple shots at Gritzinger’s vehicle with a laser sight equipped pistol striking the front passenger door three times and the passenger side windshield once.

Officials say Gritzinger sped off and was not injured.

Authorities say they issued an arrest warrant for Reynolds Jr. on Friday and he turned himself in at the Orient Road Jail.
