Staff Report

PORT CHARLOTTE — Charlotte County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a reported shooting Saturday afternoon outside Gatorz Bar & Grill in Port Charlotte.

No one was believed to have been injured.

Brad Davis, 53, was visiting his daughter who works at Gatorz on Saturday afternoon. As Davis left with his friend around 3:50 p.m., a man was backing his truck into a nearby spot and allegedly pulled a gun on Davis.

“He pointed it at my head,” Davis said. “I ran. I heard two or three shots. I’m from Iowa. I only lived here for five months. I don’t have enemies. This was just nuts.”

An older, heavyset, white man is believed to have fired the gun outside the bar before fleeing north on U.S. 41 in a dark SUV.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 941-639-2101.
