Police say that at around 11 a.m., a blue Nissan Pathfinder and a larger black pickup truck were traveling southbound on I-91 near Dillon Stadium in Hartford when the road rage incident began.
The two drivers then got off of the highway at Exit 26 (Marsh Street), pulling to the right at the end of the exit, before getting out of their vehicles.
According to police, that’s when the victim noticed that the driver of the truck had a black, long gun and he turned around to walk back towards his vehicle. The victim then heard gunshots and was struck in the leg.
The driver of the truck then got back into his vehicle and fled onto I-91 at a high rate of speed.
The victim, who has not been identified at this time, was taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
The suspect was described as a white male with a shaved head and mustache that ran down both sides of his mouth to his chin. His truck also had a chrome, or possible diamond plated tool box in the bed of it.
Anyone who saw the incident or has information about the suspect is urged to contact detectives at 860-721-2865.
