McDowell County Sheriff's Office: WANTED: Road rage driver that fired shots at truck; call 652-2237 or 65-CRIME; cash reward offered Reply with TIP

McDowell County sheriff’s deputies need the public’s help locating the driver of a vehicle that opened fire on a trucker during a road rage incident Monday afternoon, April 15.
The driver of this suspect vehicle and the driver of a tractor-trailer were involved in a situation on Interstate 40 eastbound at approximately noon. One driver cut another off, and there was some exchange of hand gestures. Both took the Exit 86 off-ramp, and, at the light, the driver of the tractor-trailer approached the suspect car. After he moved back to his rig, the driver of the suspect car then fired shots at the truck, hitting it in the front. The truck driver was not injured.
The suspect is described as a black male with short hair and a beard. The suspect car is believed to be a mid-2000’s model blue two-door Honda Civic. The Civic was possibly just purchased within the last 30 days because, at the time of the incident, it was displaying a temporary tag.
Anyone with information concerning the suspect or suspect vehicle is asked to call Detective Van Williams at 652-2237 or McDowell County Crime Stoppers at 65-CRIME (652-7463). You can also text your tips to Crime Stoppers. Text TIP MCDOWELLSO and your information to 888777. With Crime Stoppers, your identity remains anonymous, and you could receive a cash reward.
