The Washington State Patrol is looking for information about a road rage shooting that occurred on Interstate 5 on Dec. 30, near the border between Thurston and Lewis counties.
A silver or gray Mazda 4 hatchback and a black Jeep Cherokee had been traveling south on Interstate 5 when the driver of the Jeep pulled out a gun and pointed it out the window. The driver fired at least one shot, shattering the Mazda’s rear window, according to the State Patrol.
The two vehicles sped in and out of traffic, and the Mazda driver eventually lost sight of the Jeep. Law enforcement has contacted the Mazda driver, but the Jeep hasn’t been located.
The incident occurred between mileposts 93 and 83. The Jeep is described as a black, mid-2000s model with non-tinted windows and Washington license plates.
The driver of the Jeep is described as a man in his 60s or 70s with gray hair and a gray beard. The passenger in the Jeep was described as a white woman in her 80s wearing a red shirt and with an oxygen tube in her nose.
Anyone with information about the incident, the Jeep, the driver or the passenger is asked to call Detective Jen Ortiz at 360-449-7948.
