Road rage incidents can be very dangerous. It is quite simple to give the mid finger, shout obscenities or drive dangerously, but all of these can result in damage, injury or death.
It is difficult to remain calm when someone is being obnoxious or acting hostile, but it is better to remain calm and keep a good distance from them, then it is to raise your blood pressure or worse.

Regardless who started this incident, the person who shot, needs to be found, prosecuted and jailed.

My advice: IGNORE! Move on, drive safely, if possible, drive to the nearest police station.

Road rage can be deadly. Do not allow another individual to engage you in a no-win confrontation that could be lethal.

a very tragic story...
