PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia Police say they’ve found a car wanted in connection with a road rage incident involving gunfire that happened over the weekend.
Earlier on Tuesday, police released surveillance video of a suspect wanted for reportedly firing shots from his car at another driver in Center City.
The incident happened on Saturday, May 10th around 7:20 p.m. Police say a 28-year-old female told them that while she was driving on the 500 to 600 block of Lombard Street, a red 1995-1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse was following her.
The suspect reportedly blew his horn multiple times while hanging out of the driver’s side window.
When the woman turned onto Broad Street, she heard two gunshots, including one that broke her rear window.
A passenger in the victim’s car, a 20-year-old female who was in the front passenger seat, saw the suspect point a gun out of the passenger side window as they turned onto Broad.
A four-month-old baby, the victim’s niece, was seated in the rear of the vehicle.
Luckily, no injuries were reported as a result of the shots fired. The suspect fled the area and was last seen heading west on Lombard Street.
The suspect is described as a male who may be Hispanic and is between 20 and 30 years old. He was wearing glasses and has dark hair.
The suspect’s car is described as a red Mitsubishi Eclipse with an unknown document in the rear window on the right side. Police say they found a car matching that description at 8th and Fernon in South Philadelphia. They are reportedly questioning a person who is related to that vehicle.
