SANFORD, Fla. — Police in Sanford are revealing more details of an altercation Thursday involving a Seminole County school employee that led to a shooting.
The shooting occurred at around 9 a.m. at the RaceTrac on Lake Mary Boulevard.
Sanford police said Maurice Holloway, a warehouse worker for Seminole County Public Schools, was shot several times in the abdomen after threatening a man that he knew inside of the gas station.
Police said they received several 911 calls after the shooting.
Once caller said, “There’s a guy laying on the pavement here, I’m not sure if he’s shot but I heard about three of four shots.” The caller went on to tell the 911 operator, “This guy was ranting and raving, and yelling at everybody and acting like he wanted to beat somebody up.”
According to a police report, the shooter, who has not been identified, said he went into the RaceTrac to get something to eat before Holloway came in and confronted him.
The man told police that Holloway threatened to kill him before leaving the store.
Police said the man told them Holloway returned to the store as he was leaving and that Holloway had his hand under his shirt, which made the man think he had a gun.
The man then shot Holloway with his own gun, which had a concealed carry license for, police said.
Sanford police confirmed Friday that Holloway is still in critical condition at Central Florida Regional Hospital.
