PASADENA, FL -- An elderly man on his way to visit his wife at a Pinellas County hospital ended up shooting a man in self-defense in the hospital's parking lot, according to the Pinellas Sheriff's Office.
Detectives say 83-year-old Nathan Snyder was driving to Palms of Pasadena Hospital when he reportedly cut off a motorcycle as he was driving along Pasadena Avenue, about 1/2 mile north of the hospital, just before 3pm Friday afternoon.
The motorcycle driver, 64-year-old George Hall, followed Snyder into the hospital's parking lot and confronted him, investigators said.
When Snyder opened his car door, detectives say Hall began punching him in the head as Snyder was sitting in his front seat.
Snyder, who told detectives he feared for his life, pulled out a handgun and shot Hall in self-defense, according to the Sheriff's Office.

A man’s gotta know his limitations.
“Now look here, sonny. I wasn’t born yesterday...”
job well done..mr hall will think twice before attacking someone for just “cutting them off”..
It took 64 years for him meet someone that doesn't put up with his anger problem. I'll bet it's resolved now.
Right, like this 83 yr old had malintentions.
Grandpa needs a bigger gun. The guy lived.
Never pick a fight with an old man. He’s not willing to take a beating, so he’ll probably just kill you.
I get cut off on my motorcycle all the time, its routine. People either don’t see your or they do but don’t think you are significant enough to alter their intended course. It makes me mad, but to follow an old man into a parking lot and beat him up over it is just plain nuts and puts you in arsehole city.
The arsehole got what he deserved. Bet he was surprised....LOL!
Only surprise here is that nobody has blown the idiot away long before now, as I highly doubt this was his impulsive outburst.
He probably goes to the nursing home and kicks old ladies for training.
Sixtysomething geezers on bikes.......
And then one goes ballistic and gets iced by a REAL geezer whom I hope lives to see the ol’ century mark.
My bad. I thought they briefly jailed the eighty-three year old and released him with no charges filed.
I think he needs to get a bigger caliber gun. And next time, don’t open your car door. Just crack your window and let him have it because you might be seeing him again, unfortunately.

It,s about time for mandatory driver testing maybe it should start at age 53.
This can’t possibly be the first Florida driver that Hall has come across.
This brute got what he deserved for trying to brutalize an old man, even if the geezer did cut him off. A larger cabliber might be better, but if he can’t handle a larger caliber (might be a q-tip) then a quicker followup shot would work.
Just what we need. More nanny government telling you what you can and can’t do.
By the way there sonny! How old are you?
53 is old?
So you’re what? 15? 20? 30?
I’d be interested to find out what you think when you hit your 50 mark.
Unless, of course, you don’t plan on getting older.
I think it should be every three or four years from day one.
lots of addicts, and people who develop medical problems of which they are unaware out there.
I love a happy ending.
