Shot Fired During Apparent Road Rage Incident Tuesday Evening

LINCOLN–(KFOR Sept. 18)–A gunshot was fired into a vehicle at 40th and South around 8pm Tuesday, apparently when a 28-year-old man was yelling and flipping off another vehicle.

Lincoln Police say a gunshot was then fired, hitting the targeted vehicle driven by the man’s 46-year-old mother, who then stopped for help at Fire Station 7. She called police and her son then took off.

No word yet on what the issue was about.

Police are still looking for surveillance video.

Original story posted at 8am Wednesday:

Lincoln Police are looking for a vehicle with a bullet hole in it.

Sgt. Max Hubka tells KFOR NEWS what started as a road rage with words and gestures shortly after 8pm Tuesday, ended with a gunshot fired from one vehicle into another on South Street between 30th and Normal Blvd.

“We believe there is surveillance video that may be helpful in identifying that vehicle,” Hubka said.

One round was fired from the occupants of one of the vehicles into the tailgate of the other vehicle.  Hubka says it’s possible the bullet is still lodged in the victim’s vehicle.
