On November 16, 2017, an argument erupted between motorists at a stoplight on State Road 60 in Vero Beach, Florida.
Concealed carry permit holder Timothy Sartori, 29, was the man in the middle of Dennis Hicks, 38, and another motorist embroiled in a road rage confrontation with Hicks. Sartori and Hicks began to argue. Sartori claims Hicks threatened to shoot him and then reached for a gun. But Sartori was the only one in possession of a pistol. He emptied an entire magazine from a semiautomatic handgun—10-15 rounds—killing Hicks instantly and hitting a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction on State Road 60 four times. Michael Clemente was driving that vehicle with his 3 year-old son in a car seat in the back. Somehow, neither father nor son were injured. No gun was found in Hicks’ car. He leaves behind two daughters, 5 and 3.
Timothy Sartori was arrested in 2008 on felony charges of burglary of an unoccupied structure and grand theft auto. He pleaded those charges down to misdemeanors. He has also been cited on multiple occasions for reckless driving. Despite this, he was allowed to walk free after the shooting and has yet to be charged with any crime by Indian River County Assistant State Attorney Steve Gosnell!
