Deputies: Man shot with pellet gun in Bradenton drive-by shooting

Manatee County

Deputies are looking for two people suspected of shooting a man with a pellet gun in Bradenton Sunday night.

At about 8 p.m., the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 3100 block of Cortez Road West after a man reported being shot by someone in a passing car.

The man told deputies he was walking along Cortez Road when he was passed by a black Chrysler 300 and heard someone yell “boom boom.” Seconds later, another person fired two rounds out of the vehicle, hitting the victim in the leg. The man suffered a welt-like injury, but is expected to be okay.

Deputies are describing the suspects as two black males.

No further information is immediately available.

Those with information on the incident are asked to call  the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office at 941-747-3011.
