Road rage leads to shooting on SR 18

The driver of a blue truck fired at the driver of a sedan, Washington State Patrol said.

Road rage led to shots being fired on State Route 18 near 304th Street on Oct. 6, according to the Washington State Patrol, which reported that no one was injured.

At around 10:30 a.m., the Washington State Patrol received a 911 call from a person who reported being shot at while driving east on State Route 18. The caller said they were shot at during a road rage incident.

Witnesses of the shooting told state patrol investigators that a blue Dodge truck and a sedan were both driving aggressively and recklessly when the shooting happened.

The driver of the Dodge truck shot several rounds at the driver of the sedan, according to the state patrol. The driver of the sedan followed the Dodge truck for a few miles through the Kent/ Auburn area before driving to work.

The victim did not offer further cooperation with the Washington State Patrol.

With the help of witnesses, troopers located the driver of the Dodge truck and they were taken into custody, according to Washington State Patrol.

A revolver was found in the truck and the driver, a woman from Kent, was booked into King County Jail on charges of drive-by shooting.
