Fort Mill Police are asking for help in identifying a woman in connection with a serious road rage incident that occurred earlier Monday.
Here is the press release from Maj. Bryan Zachary:
At approximately 10:55AM, officers responded to the area of southbound I-77 and the exit ramp to Highway 160, in reference to a road rage / shooting incident. The victim, of Charlotte, North Carolina, advised officers that a female subject operating a Nissan Altima, black in color, fired one shot into her vehicle, which passed behind her driver’s seat and into the passenger side area. (Continues below)
The victim stated that she had exited on to the ramp, intending to turn west on Highway 160, when she noticed a vehicle approaching from behind at a high rate of speed. The victim then decreased her speed and tapped her brakes, in an effort to warn the approaching vehicle that traffic was stopped ahead.
At that time, the suspect pulled up beside (the victim), and words were exchanged between the two. As (the victim) put her window back up, to avoid further confrontation, she advised that she heard one gunshot. The suspect vehicle then proceeded ahead of her on to Highway 160. While in traffic, at that location, (the victim) took video of the female suspect and her vehicle, with her cellphone, and contacted police.
Initial investigation revealed that the “temporary” tag that was displayed on the suspect’s vehicle, appears to not be a legitimate tag.
Anyone with information can contact the Fort Mill Police Department, at 803-547-2022, or Crime Stoppers of York County, at 877-409-4321.
