Gun displayed during Route 28 road rage incident, state police say
A gun allegedly was displayed during a road rage incident on Route 28 in Frazer on Sunday, state police said in a news release Tuesday.
According to state police, the incident happened about 6:30 p.m. on Route 28 South just south of Exit 13.
None of those involved was identified. The person with the gun was described as a 20-year-old man from East Vandergrift, while the victims were a 47-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman from Freeport.
Police said the drivers of the two vehicles involved were “speeding, tailgating and hitting their brakes.”
The younger man then passed the victims and “displayed/pointed a firearm,” which police said turned out to be an air-powered handgun.
State police said all involved were taken to the Frazer police department while the incident was being investigated.
Police said the man with gun was not taken into custody, but the gun was seized. State police would not release his name Tuesday. No information on charges was available.
