Police: Man shot, killed after minor car crash in central Florida
PORT ORANGE, Fla. - A minor traffic crash led to one man's shooting death and another man's arrest on a second-degree murder charge in central Florida.
Port Orange Police say a van driven by 63-year-old Robert M. Gelles of Holly Hill rear-ended a truck slowing down for a traffic light Sunday afternoon. The truck's driver got out to talk to Gelles, who remained in his van.
Police said that's when Gelles shot 44-year-old Joseph E. Bailey III of New Smyrna Beach. Bailey was pronounced dead at a hospital. An autopsy was scheduled Monday.
Police Chief Gerald Monahan told The Daytona Beach News-Journal surveillance video from a nearby business showed nothing wrong with Bailey's behavior.
Gelles was held without bail. Volusia County jail records don't show whether he has an attorney.
