Roseville police have released two photos of a black Chevrolet Trax SUV with Minnesota license plates that detectives believe was involved in the April 1 road rage shooting that left one man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. 

The incident happened around 1:30 p.m. April 1 when a 51-year-old man driving a Jeep Comanche pulled up to a red light on southbound Rice Street between Highway 36 and County Road B when he "engaged in a verbal altercation with the driver of the black SUV," police said. 

The driver of the black SUV then allegedly pointed a black handgun at the victim and fired multiple shots through the victim's truck door, striking the 51-year-old man in the right thigh and arm. 

"The investigation has determined that the driver was likely the shooter," police said. 

Police say the victim described the shooter as a Black man aged 25-30 with "short twists or dreadlocks." He was wearing golden glasses and a black stocking cap. There also may have been a passenger in the suspect vehicle.
