A man fired two shots from a handgun after an argument on the grounds of the Frieda Zamba pool July 17 while children were in the area.

There have been no reports of injuries, and the shooter has not been identified or arrested.

The shooting happened shortly before 6 p.m., according to a Flagler County Sheriff’s Office case report.

A deputy who responded to a report of a disturbance involving weapons found two .380 caliber automatic handgun casings — one spend and one live —  in the parking lot near the pool property’s north entrance. 

A  48-year-old witness told the deputy that he’d seen a dark vehicle park and wait for another vehicle to pull up. 

The second vehicle was a silver Nissan sedan. 

A man got out of the lighter car and began arguing with the person in the darker car. There was also a second man in the silver car.

The darker car then backed out of the parking spot and sped off, and the man from the lighter car drew a handgun and fired two shots at the fleeing sedan, the witness said. 

The shooter then got into his car and sped off after the other vehicle, turning right onto Parkview Drive.

The witness couldn’t see if any rounds struck the darker car.

Deputies searched for the cars and notified area hospitals of the possibility of a shooting, but didn’t find the shooter or the victim.
