    Florida native Gary Lynne Durham served a decade behind bars for killing a man during a 2001 road rage incident— on Wednesday he was gunned down in another traffic related dispute that the family of his victim are calling "ironic."

    Durham, 40, was fatally shot early Wednesday in Plant City, Fla., after he got out of his black Mazda pickup during rush hour and confronted a man stopped behind him in a Ford SUV.

    It’s unclear what led to the confrontation, but it escalated to the point that the Ford driver, 42-year-old Roger Padgett, pulled out his handgun and fired at least one round into Durham.

    Padgett called 911 and attempted to resuscitate Durham as he lay dying on the pavement, but he could not be saved.

    No charges have been filed against Padgett while investigators determine whether Florida’s self-defense laws will protect him, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

    He told a Tampa Bay Times reporter outside his home that the day of the killing had been “taxing.”

    Before Durham was a victim of a road rage dispute, he was the perpetrator of similar violence that put him behind bars for ten years.

    In October 2001, Durham got into a screaming match with Timothy James Gibbs, 48, a man behind the wheel of a nearby car.

    Durham pulled into a parking lot where Gibbs had stopped his car and the two men got into a verbal argument. Durham punched Gibbs once in the face, causing him to collapse and hit his head on the concrete.

    Gibbs died three days later of a brain hemorrhage and skull fracture, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

    “It’s a shame he didn’t learn his lesson while in jail,” Gibbs’ widow, Nancy Gibbs, told the Florida paper.

    “I’m just glad I don’t have to worry about him or running into him somewhere. It’s ironic that he died in the same way as my husband.”

    During a press conference on Wednesday, Col. Donna Lusczynski warned the public of the perils of road rage.

    “Don’t engage with people, it’s not worth it over some sort of traffic related incident, or you’re five minutes late to work or school, just drive by and ignore the person and don’t get into some type of confrontation, it’s not worth anybody’s life,” she said.

    Wow.

    And the real story here: ZERO details in the video about how the man died... Yet they provided a blow by blow account of the first attack.

    I guess the viewers are left to assume that a CCW holder defended himself against an attack.

    A firearm was used lawfully in self defense, wouldnt want that to get out.

    Softy judges, good lawyers or overcrowded jails would be my guesses as to why he only got 10 years.
