Then for the next 15 miles (and after the first 30 sec i as on the hone with 911) they sped up and kept trying to ram each other. Crossing back and forth 5 lanes of traffic, driving recklessly, almost hitting other cars. I was waiting for the accident.

Comment copied and pasted from the op's article:

As a family memeber of one of the victims... the story is a little spun around... as media usually get it. The pt cruiser was following close behind the tuarus (my amazing uncle) ... the tuarus pulled into the car wash, of which u can see bc the pt cruiser is a bit behind the tuarus. The driver of the pt cruiser got out and shot my uncle 3and times in the chest while my aunt and my grandmother were in the car... my uncle then shot the man as he ran away.... its horrible that something soo stupid can take an amazing man like this.... very tragic

Another thing that can be learned from this is that a pistol is not an end all. I think a lot of people have the false sense of security when they carry a pistol. Just because you are armed does not mean you will be able to immediately stop a threat. This is a very sad situation. My thoughts go out to both families.

First, sorry for your loss.

But I don't understand. Your uncle was driving in front and randomly pulled into a car wash and the guy behind pulled in and shot him 3 times..................... all for no reason? Something is missing in this story.

I didn't read that to mean it was his uncle, but the uncle of the person who posted that comment on the original wzzm article linked.

I agree, definitely seems to be more to the story. Bad situation on both sides no matter how you look at it.

I don't fault the one guy for returning fire trying to defend himself. If the news story is correct (which it probably isn't, as I'm guessing there's more to this story) the guy being followed should have never stopped.

As bad as this is, it's better than if they had kept their rage on the road and possibly killed some other innocent driver in a crash.
