FLORIDA - Two men were behind the wheel in separate vehicles in Florida when each called 911 to complain about the other's driving. By the time the dispute was over, one man was shot to death in front of his wife, daughter and grandson. The other would be charged with second-degree murder. The deadly encounter was caught on two 911 calls.

The two Florida men had crossed paths just two and a half minutes earlier. 51 year old Robert Doyle telling the operator that he has a gun at his house and 44 year old Candelario Gonzalez telling another operator that he is following Doyle's vehicle home. The operator tells Gonzalez not to go there, but moments later Gonzalez can be heard yelling at Doyle. Then shots are fired. Gonzalez' wife begs for police to come as Doyle orders her and the children to exit their truck and wait for police-- that he has also asked to respond on his call.
Doyle fired at Gonzalez fives times. Gonzalez was only hit four times. The first shot struck him in the chest but then the accounts vary. The Citrus County Sheriff says the other three shots were in the back but Doyle's wife is heard on the 911 call saying that Gonzalez had continued his charge toward Doyle as he fired.
Robert Doyle was charged with second-degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault. He's out on bond wearing an ankle- monitor and awaiting his next court date.
