On March 19, 2021, just after 2 pm, deputies responded to a reported road rage incident that occurred on Walker Road near the South Shore entrance to Lynx Lake, Prescott, AZ.
The suspect vehicle is described as a late 1990’s to early 2000’s white Toyota-4 Runner, slightly lifted, with white bumpers towing a single axle utility trailer with a mesh type loading ramp. The suspect driver is white male, late 50’s to early 60’s, gray hair which is possibly balding, a ‘big nose,’ and a thick gray/white mustache.
The victim had turned onto Walker Road from Highway 69 and after travelling for about a mile, passed the suspect’s slower moving vehicle. The suspect then attempted to rear end the victim who was now trying to create distance from the upset driver. As they approached the entrance to Lynx Lake South Shore, the victim heard a popping sound and realized something hit his car. He looked back and saw the suspect pointing a black handgun outside the driver’s side window of the Toyota 4-Runner. It was evident the suspect was extremely agitated. Deputies later confirmed a round struck the back of the victim’s vehicle. The victim sped away and the suspect stopped following him and was last seen around mile marker 4 on Walker Road.
The victim was not injured. It appeared the suspect was the only occupant in the Toyota 4-Runner.
