Port Orange Locksmith - Port Orange, FL (386)-269-1462 Port Orange, FL

Fatal encounter: Police in Florida said Robert Gelles, 63 (left), shot and killed Joseph Bailey III, 44 (right) in a suspected road-rage incident in Port Orange Sunday

Fender-bender: Shots rang out shortly after Gelles' locksmith van rear-ended Bailey's silver Chevy Avalanche truck slowing down for a traffic light

Killed over nothing: Police Chief Gerald Monahan said there was 'no justifiable reason' for the shooting

That is when investigators say Gelles pulled out a gun and shot the other driver in the chest.

Bailey was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy on his body got under way at 9am Monday.

He said Gelles' van had only minor damage after the fender-bender, which took place at Dunlawton and South Ridgewood avenues at about 5.15pm.

Responding officers recovered a handgun from Gelles' van.

Passengers who were in Gelles' van and Bailey's vehicle were not harmed in the incident.

The 63-year-old suspect is being held without bail at Volusia County jail.

Ironic: when Gelles was interviewed last summer by ClickOrlando about a robbery in Port Orange, he showed a reporter his gun that he kept in his van for protection (pictured)

Checkered past: had a criminal record in Florida stretching back to at least 2006 with more than a half-dozen arrests for DUI and battery

Online records show that in 2007, Gelles was arrested on an aggravated assault charge.

Joseph Bailey was a divorced father from New Smyrna Beach. He is survived by a 19-year-old daughter.

He also had a criminal record in Florida stretching back to at least 2006 with more than a half-dozen arrests for driving violations, including multiple DUIs, as well as domestic battery charges.
