The Violent Crimes Task Force is investigating a Friday night shooting at an intersection.
Witnesses told the Manatee County Sheriff's Deputies that shortly after 10 p.m. two men pulled up in the middle of the intersection of 9th Street Ct W and 35th Ave W in a white Astro type van.
The two then got out of the van, stood in the intersection and shouted "West side" and began to fire rounds into the parking lot where people were sitting, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office. No one in the parking lot was hit by the gunfire.
Witnesses said that 5-7 rounds were fired by the subjects before they drove off on 35th Ave W. The van apparently had a flat tire at during the incident. One suspect was heavy set wearing a white t-shirt and the other was medium build wearing all black.
