Road rage ends in gunshot

A man found a bullet in the side of his vehicle after a road rage incident involving an unknown driver.

The victim told police he had just picked up a new car and was driving it home with his father following behind, according to the incident report.

The victims were traveling east on I-20 near the rest area when a vehicle came up behind the victim's father's car flashing its lights. The vehicle passed the victim in the right lane and got into the left lane in front of the victim's car. The subject vehicle then slammed on brakes, causing the victim to drastically slow down.

The victim's father then got side-by-side with the subject's vehicle when the victim heard a gunshot and saw something hit his father's car. The driver then sped off.

Investigators retrieved a bullet from inside the car that entered through the driver's side rear panel.
