St. LOUIS (AP) - O'Fallon police say a 65-year-old man traveling with his wife and grandson shot a motorcyclist during a road rage incident.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the motorcyclist became upset with the man for cutting off his wife, who was driving a separate motorcycle on Interstate 70 on Saturday.
Police said the 49-year-old motorcyclist and the grandfather exited the highway and the male motorcyclist walked up to the grandfather's car at a red light. The two men argued and police said the motorcyclist assaulted the 65-year-old driver, who pulled out a semi-automatic pistol and shot the motorcyclist once in the upper chest.
Police said the motorcyclist was hospitalized but his injury doesn't appear life-threatening. They didn't release the names of the people involved.
Police said their investigation is continuing.
