Traffic argument turns into a shooting


Most road rage incidents end with a loud horn, but Saturday one traffic argument escalates into shots fired, and then causing another accident.  Rockford police were called to the scene of an accident on the 700 block of Auburn Street, located in between River Park and the St. Mary’s and St. James cemeteries just after 5pm Saturday.  When police arrived at the scene one of the victims told police the incident started when they got into a fight with another car.  That’s when when one of the people in the car opened fire and started shooting at them.  The victim then hit another car while trying to dodge the bullets, causing a minor accident.  The shooter’s car, described as a black car,  then drove away. No one was hurt in the incident.  Anyone with information should call the Rockford Police Department at (815) 966-2900 or Crimestoppers at (815) 963-7867.
