RAW surveillance video,October 25/08:A man arrived at a Lake Park towing firm this morning(October 22/08)and, after an argument, shot a female employee in the arm and the owner multiple times before an arriving deputy shot the gunman, authorities say.
The 51-year-old West Palm Beach man apparently arrived at the business sometime before 9:20 a.m., Palm Beach County Sheriff's spokeswoman Teri Barbera said. There was an altercation and someone from the company, Lake Park Towing, called 9-1-1.
They received a second call that shots were being fired shortly after. Meanwhile, another employee got a handgun and fired at the man, Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said.
As the deputy entered the tow yard at 803 13th St., the man was still firing a semi-automatic rifle. Bradshaw said the deputy ordered him to drop the gun, but instead the man turned and pointed it at the deputy. The deputy fired and the two exchanged several shots until the gunman came down with at least one shot to the torso, Barbera said. The deputy was not injured.
Investigators are still not clear on the man's motive and have not released anyone's name. The owner and his employee were taken to St. Mary's Medical Center, where the owner is in critical condition with several wounds including one to the back. The woman's injuries appear not to be life threatening, Barbera said
