5 Fwy Shooting May Have Been a Case of Road Rage
A freeway shooting in Orange County this morning might have been triggered by some road rage, police tell the LA Times. Around 5:37 a.m. at the Penn Way 5 freeway on-ramp in Santa Ana, the suspect was apparently angered that a car was in front of him, so he rolled down the window and fired, hitting the other driver in the arm. The suspect got away and the victim was taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
