Police said the victim, who has not been identified, was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center and is in stable condition.

Investigators said they had originally believed the shooting was related to road rage, but they determined that does not appear to be the case after reviewing surveillance footage.

Video showed a pickup truck being parked moments before a light sedan, possibly a Nissan Altima, was driven to the front of the convenience store. The driver of the pickup then drove behind the car.

The two men began arguing and the man who was in the car shot the man who was in the pickup before driving away, officials said.

Police said the two might know one another, but it is unknown why they were arguing.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
