He told police that’s when a driver cut him off and he honked his horn. That’s when the other driver pulled out an AR-15 and fired two shots in the air from his sunroof.

The driver who honked called police and followed the road rage suspect into an area where a standoff began. The standoff with police lasted hours. The man was finally arrested.
