SARASOTA CO., Florida -- A window with a hole blasted through it, blood on the seat, and a floor full of bird shot is what police found after a nasty and terrifying road rage incident.

Cops say it all started as two vehicles were traveling southbound on US 41. As the cars passed the La Casa Mobile Home Park, the suspect aimed a shotgun at the other vehicle and fired, blowing a hole in the window.

Glass and birdshot peppered the two passengers inside. The victims followed the suspect, but gave up the chase after a few miles.

"The victims called 911 and flagged down a North Port police officer, and the suspect vehicle drives away," saidLt. John Walsh from the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.

Police marked evidence with tents, interviewing witnesses and taking statements from the victims.

"Injuries appear to be non life-threatening and they were transported to a local hospital where they are being treated right now," said Walsh.

The suspect was driving a green Geo with a black top, with no license plate.
