CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Police arrested three people for a road rage shooting on Chippenham Parkway.

A truck driver called 911 Thursday afternoon after he merged onto Chippenham Parkway north and heard a gunshot.

"The tractor trailer driver realized he had been shot and saw a gold Hyundai Sonata occupied by three people passing his vehicle and heading north on Chippenham Parkway," a Chesterfield Police spokesperson said. "The tractor trailer driver recognized the vehicle as one that attempted to pull out in front of him while traveling on Commerce Road in Richmond. The tractor trailer driver had the right of way and did not yield to the vehicle coming out of a business."

While he went to the hospital to be treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound, police looked for the shooter.

"An officer in the area spotted the suspect vehicle and followed it. When the officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop, the suspect vehicle fled and a pursuit ensued," the police spokesperson continued. "Officers pursued the vehicle, which ultimately turned onto Ferguson Street in Richmond City, where the three suspects attempted to flee. After a brief foot chase, all three suspects were taken into custody."

Passengers Keyonna M. Wise, 26, and Khadijah R. Neal, 25, were charged with shooting into an occupied vehicle.

"At this point, the investigation indicates that this shooting was road-rage related," the police spokesperson continued. "All three suspects are being held at the Chesterfield County Jail without bond."
