JEFFERSON COUNTY, Missouri (KSDK) – The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department is searching for a man who might have been shot in an apparent road rage incident.
It all started around 6 p.m. Saturday at a St. Louis County shopping center. Investigators said two cars got into a fender bender.
In one car was a man, and in the other was a family. The man, who was responsible for the accident, drove off, according to witness testimony, so the family followed him. They caught up with him just off Highway 141 and Romaine Creek Road near Fenton.
The man driving the car carrying his family was able to stop the other car, then got out to confront him. He allegedly stuck his hand into the other man's window to turn off the ignition, and the driver backed his car up. The man's wife had gotten out of their car, and was hit as the other driver backed up.
So, investigators say her husband got out a weapon and started shooting.
The woman was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries. Investigators are looking for the driver who got away.
They think he is driving a 2004 silver BMW with license plate FJ6Z8M that has front and rear end damage.
As of Saturday night, the man who fired shots was cooperating with investigators and had not been taken into custody.
Anyone with information is asked to call Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Detective Bureau 636-797-5515, 636-222-1327 or 636-797-9999.
