Phoenix car accident leads to road rage incident; man shot and killed

Police are looking for a suspect who shot and killed a man during a dispute following a Phoenix car accident.

AZ Family reported that a 35-year-old man was killed Saturday afternoon after the Chevy Suburban he was riding in collided with a Nissan Sentra.

Both vehicles were westbound on Southern Avenue near 19th Avenue when the Nissan stopped, causing the Suburban to run into it. The Nissan drove away but was followed by the Suburban until both vehicles stopped and an argument ensued. The Suburban’s passenger was apparently shot. His son was in the back seat but was not injured.

The Suburban driver was also uninjured.

The Chevy drove to the South Mountain Police Station, where the victim was transported to the hospital. He died as the result of a gunshot wound to the head.

Police are searching for a white Nissan Sentra, with a possible partial Arizona plate number of “052.” The vehicle may also have rear-end damage as a result of the collision.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Phoenix Police Violent Crimes Bureau at 602-262-6141. For Spanish, the number is 480-TESTIGO.
