Virginia State Police are asking for the public to come forward with any information regarding a shooting Wednesday night on Interstate 64 in Hampton.
Police are classifying the shooting, which happened around 10 p.m. near the Mallory Street exit ramp, as a “road rage” incident, according to a state police news release.
The incident resulted in one driver shooting at the driver of the other vehicle, but no one was injured.
The Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Chesapeake Field Office is leading the investigation.
According to police, the two vehicles were entering a construction zone at the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel when the shooting occurred. A “large white” pickup truck was trying to merge in front of a 2014 Audi, but was unsuccessful, striking several construction cones.
After striking the cones, the white truck was able to get in front of the Audi, but started driving aggressively.
When the two vehicles neared the Mallory Street exit in Hampton, the pickup truck driver shot at the Audi, the release said. The Audi driver was the only person in the vehicle.
State police are asking for any witnesses who were driving on I-64 near the HRBT at the time of the shooting to come forward.
Anyone with information about this shooting, or anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious behavior, should contact the Virginia State Police at 757-424-6800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
