DENVER (CBS4)– Police in Denver hope a sketch of a suspected driver will lead them to an arrest in a road rage shooting.
On May 4, a woman who was a passenger in a vehicle was shot in the leg while traveling southbound on Interstate 25 between 58th Avenue and 20th Street.
Police released a sketch of the suspected shooter on Tuesday, along with a picture of a vehicle similar to the one the suspect was driving. The suspect was described as being a thin, white man in his late 20s with light hair and a reddish beard. The truck had a beige stripe at the bottom.
The driver of the car the victim was in drove to 11th Street and Auraria Parkway to talk to police officers before the victim was rushed to the hospital.
Prior to the shooting, sources tell CBS4 the victim was at the Grizzly Rose, the country bar at 5450 North Valley Highway.
While police say they are investigating the crime as a case of possible road rage, there’s no word so far on a specific motive for the shooting.
Anyone with information regarding this crime or recognizes the suspect in the sketch is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867). You can text to CRIMES (274637) then title DMCS and enter your message or send an e-mail to metro-denvercrimestoppers.com.
