ORLANDO, Fla. — Police in Orlando are searching for a man they say pulled out a gun and pointed it at another shopper in a Publix deli line.

The incident happened Saturday evening, according to authorities. On Tuesday, the police department released new surveillance video of the incident on Twitter.

Police say the 73-year-old man was waiting in line when he noticed another customer glaring at him. He told investigators he asked the man if they knew each other. That's when the man drew the handgun and pointed it at the man's face.

A police report says he told the man not to mess with him. The man fled and police are looking for him.
