Meanwhile, in Gales Point Manatee: a confrontation quickly escalated into a shooting incident outside of a business in the village on Saturday. Sometime after 4:00 in the afternoon, Emmanuel Samuels and Norman Slusher were at a store in the village when two men, who they knew, approached them. Slusher confronted the two men about rumors that they wanted to kill him. An argument then ensued, resulting in one of the men producing a firearm and pointing it at Samuels and Slusher. The assailant then used the firearm to hit Slusher once in the face. Fearing for their lives, the duo then fled in a vehicle as the assailants opened fire on them. Police have since detained three persons and are seeking fourth.
