Man With Gun Shuts Down Polling Place In Democrat-Dominated Florida Town
A gun-wielding man shut down a polling place in Palm Bay Florida on Tuesday, authorities said on Tuesday, the Florida Today reports.
The voting booths at the Tony Rosa Community Center were shut down because a man was sitting in his car with a gun nearby.
Police responded to the scene and reportedly detained an 80-year-old man and put him in their patrol car for further questioning.
“We don’t have a crime right now. But he was seen by a passerby sitting in his car with the gun in his lap,” the city’s police chief said.
Palm Bay is a Democrat-dominated city surrounded by a red county.
