Police: Search underway for armed man, woman involved in road-rage shooting in Edgewater

EDGEWATER, Fla. — A search was underway Friday afternoon for a man and woman involved in a road-rage shooting, the Edgewater Police Department said.

Police said James W. Seiler, 41, and another driver confronted one another at about 12:30 p.m. Friday near Indian River Boulevard and Air Park Road.


Investigators said Seiler pulled out a gun and fired several shots into the ground before shooting the victim’s vehicle.

They said the victim sustained minor injuries after being hit in the head several times with a survey stake.

Officials said Seiler is believed to have suffered lacerations to his chest during the incident as the victim drew a knife in self-defense.
