State Patrol seeks witnesses to Highway 167 road rage shooting near Kent

Jaguar driver fired three shots from AR-15 rifle that hit pickup taillight

The Washington State Patrol is seeking witnesses to a road rage shooting at about 1:10 p.m. on Saturday, May 8 along southbound Highway 167 just south of South 277th Street near the Kent-Auburn border.

A man called 911 to report that a driver of a green Jaguar four-door fired three shots from an AR-15 rifle at his vehicle, striking the right taillight, according to a May 12 State Patrol news release. The victim sped off and made the 911 call as the suspect vehicle exited the highway.

The victim was driving a gray Dodge Ram pickup and told troopers he was involved in a road rage incident.

Any witnesses to this incident or information that would help identify the green Jaguar and driver can contact Detective Ruth Medeiros at 425-401-7719 or by email at Ruth.Medeiros@wsp.wa.gov.
