The Tampa Police Department said on Thursday the man hurled ethnic
slurs during the altercation inside the station's store and then,
after walking out and pulling his Jeep in front of the store, fired
three gunshots and drove off.
Police later stopped the man near the University of South Florida,
finding two pistols, an assault rifle, and military equipment, the
department said. A bomb squad was called to search his Jeep.
The man also faces charges of shooting from a vehicle and criminal
mischief. There were no injuries.
