Georgia Road Rage Suspect Followed Victim Before Opening Fire on Him, Cops Say
A Georgia man is facing multiple charges after being arrested for a morning road rage shooting, according to authorities.
Around 8:15 a.m. on May 15, 911 operators received a call from a driver stating they had been shot less than an hour before, WAGA-TV reported.
The driver stated he was driving on the highway behind a white Toyota that was driving slowly in the fast lane. The driver honked at the Toyota and eventually passed the vehicle, WAGA reported.
Shortly afterwards, the driver noticed the Toyota began following him. All of a sudden, the driver of the Toyota opened fire, shattering the other driver’s side window and hitting him in the arm, according to authorities.
The victim attempted to follow the gunman, but eventually lost him, which is when he pulled over and called 911, WAGA reported.
Officers were able to locate the Toyota and talked with its driver, 31-year-old Joshua Kasparek, who shared a similar version of events as the victim.
