ADELPHI Md. (AP) _ An irate bicyclist bumped by a car turning at an intersection in this Washington suburb Wednesday shot and killed its driver, police said.

Alajandra Jose Grant, 26, of Silver Spring, Md., was charged with first degree murder in the shooting about 4:15 p.m. near the University of Maryland campus, said Prince George’s County police spokesman Michael Montgomery.

Police said the driver, Joy Estrella Mariano Enriquez, 19, of Oxon Hill, Md., had pulled over after bumping Grant’s bike. Grant approached her, the two argued and then he pulled out a pistol and shot her in the head, police said.

Grant fled on foot but was apprehended several blocks away, police said.
