A road rage situation has now turned ghetto, and this has occurred in Washington, D.C. I suppose there was no surprise there at all.
But no, this actually wasn’t “fabulous” at all, but actually a total mess. Perhaps I’m showing my age here, but I recall a time when the NBA’s Washington Wizards were actually called by a different name, and it was in the midst of the brutal 90s when gun violence was at an all-time high that the owner of the team decided to change his name from the “Bullets” to the “Wizards”, but I digress.
In this particular case, the gunman is believed to have been driving a Maserati when he opened fire on the other driver in broad daylight during this road rage incident. He was caught on video last week in Washington, D.C.
The D.C. Metropolitan Police Department released some additional surveillance video of the incident last Friday. Apparently, the incident occurred in the 1600 block of Kenilworth Avenue a little after 5 p.m. last Wednesday.
The most damning portrait that the surveillance captured was when the gunman was seen getting out of his vehicle at the traffic stop and walking over to the driver’s side of the sedan that was directly in front of him. The Maserati driver then proceeds to pull out a gun and open fire.
Even after the sedan sped away from this dangerous maniac, the road rage situation does not go out with a whimper, but with a bang, for the gunman appears to briefly point his firearm at the upcoming traffic. However, the good news is that it was immediately clear whether any additional shots had been fired.
There was a woman whom authorities did not name that was located nearby and she had an obvious gunshot wound. She suffered non-life-threatening injuries from this road rage incident and she was expected to be treated and released.
UPDATE: In late August, the police identified Kenneth Miles Davis Jr. as the suspect in the road rage shooting. He ultimately was tracked down by U.S. Marshalls in Costa Rica and apprehended in September.
