There's a story out of Michigan where two gun owners got involved in a case of road rage, and ended up shooting and killing each other.
Two drivers are dead after a road rage incident escalated into a shootout. The incident happened around 6:45p.m. Wednesday on M-66 near Steele Street.Haven't heard of something like this happening before.
Witnesses tell WZZM 13 a one driver was following another driver too closely. The first driver pulled into a car wash parking lot and the other driver followed them into the parking lot.
Witnesses say the driver of the following car fired shots, and the first driver returned fire. Both drivers were shot and killed. Authorities say both men, ages 43 and 56, had licenses to carry concealed weapons.
8:13 AM PT: There's more information from the Detroit Free Press about the shooting. It looks like the tailgater was the one with road rage that caused everything. Looks like the driver in front was protecting his wife and mother who were in the car with him when they were shot at by the tailgater.
The mother-in-law of James Pullum, one of two men who died in an apparent road-rage fueled shootout Wednesday, said her daughter and Pullum's mother witnessed the double shooting.All right, it looks like they got out of their cars to argue before they shot each other. That initial story made it seem like the tailgater had fired upon the family when the driver was still inside the car.
The double shooting happened shortly before 7 p.m. at the Wonder Wand Car Wash at 426 S. Steele St.
Police said the 43-year-old Pullum and the other victim, 56-year-old Robert Taylor, both pulled their vehicles into the car wash after some type of road-rage incident moments earlier.
Both had permits to carry concealed weapons.
After a confrontation between the two men outside of the vehicles, they exchanged shots that ended up being fatal to both men.
Yeah... if neither one has a gun, it probably ends with a broken nose instead of two funerals.
