A man was shot in the hand yesterday afternoon after an alleged road rage attack, according to the LAPD. The 35-year-old man while driving on the northbound 101 freeway when at least six shots were fired at him, forcing him to exit onto Lankershim Blvd and stopping outside a body shop on the 4300 block near Bloomfield St. shortly before 3:45 p.m. The shooter crashed into a pole and ditched the car only to be found a few blocks away by police, ABC7 reported.

"I saw the entire Body Shop staff in handcuffs with seven or eight cop cars, a couple of CHP cars, and a few plain-clothes police," one bystander told LAist. Those detained were later released after police caught the suspect. The man's injuries were considered non life-threatening.
