INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A driver died after what Indiana State Police suspect was a road rage shooting on Wednesday afternoon that led to a car going from Interstate 65 into a pond.

The crash happened around 1 p.m. Wednesday. Sgt. John Perrine said the driver was in an incident involving road rage and gunfire while on I-65 northbound near the 103-mile marker. That’s south of the Southport Road exit on the city’s south side.

The driver, identified as male, went off the interstate and was ejected from the car, which ended up into a residential pond next to the interstate in the 7800 block of Tanza Road. That’s in the Redwoods Apartment Neighborhoods.

The driver died at the scene from injuries consistent with a gunshot wound, along with injuries from being ejected from the car.

State police say before the crash, it was alleged that shots were being fired from inside a vehicle toward the car that was found in the pond. Officers also located bullet holes in the side of the car.

Police said in a news release on Thursday that detectives located the second vehicle that is believed to be involved late Wednesday evening.

State police asked anyone who saw something to call the Indianapolis post at 317-899-8577.
