HAMPTON, Va. -- Virginia State Police are investigating a road rage related shooting on Interstate 64 in Hampton. The shooting was reported Wednesday, March 28, at about 9:54 p.m., near the westbound Mallory Street exit.
"The victim contacted the Virginia State Police Communications Center and advised that he was traveling westbound in a 2014 Audi, when he believed that occupants in a white F350 style pick up truck, fired gun shots at his vehicle. The victim exited the interstate on Mallory Street and waited for Troopers to arrive," a Virginia State Police spokesperson said. "Preliminary investigations reveal that the shooting was preceded by a road rage incident."
No one was hurt in the incident.
"Prior to the shooting, the pickup truck had tried to merge into traffic at a work zone lane closure at the HRBT," the state police spokesperson continued. "When the pickup was not able to merge in front of the Audi, the pickup struck several construction cones and finally cut in front of the Audi. The pickup truck, while ahead of the Audi, began driving aggressively towards the Audi. As the two vehicles approached Mallory Street, the driver of the pickup truck fired the shot at the Audi."
State Police asked witnesses driving on Interstate 64 westbound, near the Hampton Roads Bridge–Tunnel, to call 757-424-6800.
This is a developing story.
