(Scroll down for video) A man flew into a rage after believing that his mother’s friend was hitting on his non-existent girlfriend, according to police in Florida.

The Pasco Sheriff’s Office said that 30-year-old Brian Desario shot and killed 56-year-old David Armstrong on Thursday afternoon.

The incident unfolded in front of the suspect’s mother and boyfriend at their home located at 11605 Constance Drive in Port Richey.

According to family members, Desario suffered from mental illness and complained that Armstrong was hitting on his imaginary girlfriend.

Armstrong was pronounced dead at the scene.

The sheriff’s office said: “On Thursday, at around 2:50 p.m., deputies responded to an active shooting scene at the residence on Constance Dr. in the Gulf Highlands neighborhood in Port Richey.

“It was reported by witnesses that shooting suspect Disario had shot and killed the victim at the home in the garage and was also shooting a gun in the street outside a school, which lead to a standoff with two of our deputies when they arrived on scene.”

The shootout caused the nearby Gulf Highlands Elementary School to go into lockdown.

Desario was killed during the gun battle.

He stockpiled weapons and ammunition at his home.
