YAVAPAI SILENT WITNESS IS OFFERING UP TO A $1,000 CASH REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE ARREST OF A ROAD RAGE SUSPECT WHO SHOT AT ANOTHER DRIVER.
Prescott, AZ – The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying the driver of a violent road rage incident. The incident occurred on March 19th, 2021, just after 2 pm, on Walker Road near the South Shore entrance to Lynx Lake in Prescott. The victim called 911 after the driver of another vehicle pulled out a gun and fired at the victim’s car.
The victim reported he was on Walker Road when they passed the suspect’s slower moving vehicle. The suspect then attempted to rear-end the victim who was now trying to create distance from the upset driver. As they approached the entrance to Lynx Lake South Shore, the victim heard a popping sound and realized something hit his car. He looked back and saw the suspect pointing a black handgun outside the driver’s side window of the Toyota 4-Runner. Deputies later confirmed a round struck the back of the victim’s vehicle. The victim sped away and the suspect stopped following him. The suspect’s car was last seen around mile marker 4 on Walker Road. The victim was not injured.
The suspect vehicle is described as the late 1990s to early 2000’s white Toyota-4 Runner, slightly lifted, with white bumpers towing a single axle utility trailer with a mesh type loading ramp. The suspect driver is a white male, in his late 50’s to early ’60s, with gray hair which is possibly balding, a ‘big nose,’ and a thick gray/white mustache. It appeared the suspect was the only occupant in the Toyota 4-Runner. Anyone providing information leading to an arrest, in this case, could be eligible for up to a $1,000 cash reward.
