Washington State Patrol is asking for the public’s help locating a driver who allegedly shot out the rear window of a car during a road rage incident on Interstate 5.
According to Trooper Will Finn, the shooting happened on southbound I-5 near the Lewis/Thurston County line on the morning of Dec. 30, 2015.
The driver of a Jeep Cherokee pointed a handgun out of the window and fired at least one shot, shattering the rear window of a Mazda sedan, Finn said.
The two drivers continued to weave in and out of traffic on I-5, until the Mazda driver lost sight of the Cherokee around milepost 80.
WSP is looking for a black, mid-2000s Jeep Cherokee (photo of similar vehicle above) with non-tinted windows and Washington license plates.
The driver was described as a white man in his 60s or 70s with gray hair and a gray beard. He was traveling with a passenger described as a white woman in her mid-80s wearing a red shirt, with an oxygen tube in her nose.
Anyone with information about the vehicle or the driver is asked to call Detective Jen Ortiz at 360-449-7948.
