[ISP] Illinois Woman’s Vehicle Shot in Road Rage Incident
Start Date: 1/20/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 1/20/2014
Entry Description

Gary, Lake County-A Lansing, Illinois woman (victim) was involved in a road rage incident where her vehicle was shot shortly after entering the interstate this evening.

Preliminary investigation revealed that at approximately 9:00 p.m., Sunday, January 19, 2014, Indiana State Police responded to a report of a vehicle that was shot while on west bound I-80/94. A thirty three (33) year-old Lansing woman stated she had been on 25th Avenue in Gary driving her black Chrysler 300 slowly because of potholes when a car that was behind her was following too closely. The woman stated she braked to get the car to back off and this angered the other driver. The victim stated the other car got in front of her vehicle as they turned off 25th onto Burr Street and they both entered I-80/94 west bound.

Shortly after entering the interstate she noticed that the other car, described as a red four door passenger car with dark tinted windows, pulled alongside her and the driver, described as a black male with dreadlocks wearing a black sock hat, pointing a gun at her and began shooting. The suspect shot 4-5 times as the victim drove away at a high rate of speed to get away. Investigators determined that one bullet struck the Chrysler’s rear bumper entering the trunk.

The victim was not injured.

Anyone who may have seen or witnessed the road rage or shooting please contact Detective Chris Campione at 219-696-6242
