By Sam Catanzaro

Santa Monica police are investigating an incident of road rage that led to a shooting Monday afternoon. 

According to the Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD), on September 6 around 1:21 p.m., officers responded to a report of shots fired in the area of Yorkshire Avenue and Pico Boulevard. At the same time, an additional caller reported a hit and run near the same location, police noted. 

When officers arrived on scene, both the suspect and suspect vehicle were gone, according to the SMPD. 

“The officers met with a victim and witnesses who reported that the suspect in this incident rammed the victims’ car from behind in a possible road rage incident. The victims exited their vehicle and while attempting to flee were targeted by the suspect who fired several gun shots at them,” the SMPD said. “One of the victims received a grazing wound to his knee and was transported to a local hospital.”

SMPD detectives are attempting to identify and locate the suspect and vehicle involved in this incident. The suspect is described as a white man, between 20-25 years old, around 6’1”, with a thin build and having tattoos on the right side of his face. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a blue and white long sleeve sweater, gray or tan pants and white shoes. The vehicle he was driving is described as a newer black Mercedes Benz 4 door sedan. 

Anyone with additional information pertaining to this incident or individual is strongly encouraged to contact Detective Haro with the Criminal Investigations Division at 310-458-2256 or the Santa Monica Department’s Watch Commander (24 hours) at 310-458-8427.
