Nicholas Carrasquillo, a 26-year-old suspect said he killed a 30-year-old man in a road-rage shooting early Monday in Orlando.

Nicholas Carrasquillo is currently facing a first-degree murder charge in the death of David Alexzander Sligh.

Carrasquillo told police that a white vehicle, driven by Sligh, cut in front of him, causing him to brake hard, and he honked his horn and flashed his lights, an affidavit shows.

He said Sligh said something out of his window to Carrasquillo, and Carrasquillo opened his driver’s door to hear what Sligh was saying since his window doesn’t go down, according to police.

Carrasquillo said the two were yelling at each other when the light turned green and the white vehicle did not move, according to the affidavit.

Carrasquillo then reached into his glovebox for his gun, stood partially outside the vehicle and pointed the gun at the white vehicle, the affidavit shows.

He shot at the ground next to the car and fired more shots toward the driver, saying he just wanted to “maim” the driver, according to the affidavit.

Police said six bullet casings were recovered.

Nearby surveillance video revealed one shot was fired and a second later, five gunshots rang out in a span of a few seconds, according to police.

Carrasquillo told police he grabbed his gun because he felt trapped but never saw Sligh with a weapon, the affidavit states.

“He acknowledged he could have driven around him but feared he would be followed. When asked if this would have happened if he never flashed his bright lights and honked his horn, he stated the white vehicle probably would have driven off,” the affidavit reads.
