Police in Richfield are investigating a road rage incident in which a driver opened fire at another vehicle following a crash on I-35W.

The incident started around 12:30 p.m. Saturday, when two vehicles southbound on I-35W were involved in a collision following an "altercation."

The drivers continued but exited the interstate in Richfield, with one following the other to the intersection of 67th Street and 5th Avenue.

When one of the drivers pulled over – telling police they intended to exchange insurance information – the second drove by and fired 2-3 shots at their vehicle, before fleeing the area.

Two bullet holes were found in the victim's vehicle, though the two people inside the vehicle were unharmed.
