Phoenix man facing charges in road-rage shooting on freeway
PHOENIX (AP) — A Phoenix man is facing charges after he allegedly shot a driver in a road-rage incident on a Phoenix-area freeway.
Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say 24-year-old Arturo Pena was arrested after the incident early Saturday on the Loop 101.
Bond was set at $50,000 at Pena’s initial court appearance Sunday. He doesn’t have a lawyer yet.
Pena told authorities he fired one shot at the driver of a sports car to scare him.
The other driver was taken to a hospital for treatment of a neck wound. His name hasn’t been released.
DPS troopers and Peoria police arrested Pena after he exited the freeway and stopped at a shopping center.
Authorities say Pena is jailed on suspicion of drive-by shooting, endangerment and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
