A suspect who is believed to have been driving a high-priced sports car opened fire at another motorist during what appears to be a road rage incident in the District of Columbia.
The D.C. Metropolitan Police Department released a video of the shooting that occurred in the 1600 block of Kenilworth Avenue just after 5 p.m. on May 19.
It shows a gunman emerging from a Maserati two-door coupe and approaching the driver’s side of the car in front of him and appears to be trying to conceal the firearm. The man, who is wearing a black T-shirt and blue jeans, opens fire as the other vehicle leaves.
Police said that a woman was found nearby with what appears to be a gunshot wound. She was treated at a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
Authorities did not say what led up to the shooting.
The vehicle driven by the suspect was described as a two-door gray Maserati, according to the D.C. police department.
