MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities are trying to locate a man who's suspected of pointing a gun at a driver and threatening to kill her during a road-rage incident in Mesa last year.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say 23-year-old Michael Floris was driving on U.S. 60 in Mesa on July 11 when he allegedly aimed a handgun at a driver.

They say Floris followed the woman off the highway and stopped his car in front of hers.

Floris then exited his vehicle and approached her while allegedly pointing a gun and making death threats.

The woman filmed the incident.

Authorities believe Floris is living in southern California, but he has ties to the Phoenix and Las Vegas areas.
