On Saturday, Nov. 10, at approximately 2:10 p.m., drivers in a grey Ford Escape and a white Nissan Altima became involved in a road rage incident from northbound I-5 to the South 56th Street exit, continuing on the City streets of Tacoma to South 52nd Street and South Cushman Avenue.
The suspect pulled a handgun and fired rounds at the victim vehicle, striking the rear of the victim’s vehicle several times and narrowly missing the victim. The suspect then fled, the victim following through city streets, onto northbound Interstate 5. Both exited into Fife where the suspect brandished the weapon at the victim a second time in the parking lot of Joe’s Deli.
Detectives are seeking additional witnesses to the chain of events. If you observed the incident Saturday afternoon, or have any information related to it please call State Patrol Detective Vik Mauro at 253-538-3176 or Detective Sgt. Bruce Lantz at 253-538-3178.
