A shooting that sent a woman to the hospital Friday evening is being attributed to road rage on Raleigh’s Beltline.
Police responded to the shooting on eastbound I-440 about 8 p.m. Officials closed that side of the Beltline, between Glenwood Avenue and Six Forks Road, for about an hour.
Raleigh police said on Monday that the suspect vehicle was described as a silver BMW SUV with a white male driver and a white female passenger. The investigation was ongoing as of Monday evening, police said.
The shooting may have come in response to the 22-year-old victim accidentally cutting off another driver, ABC11 reported. The woman had at least one gunshot to her lower body, according to the station, with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
WNCN reported the car appeared to be shot at least four times on the driver’s side.
