Teen shot in road rage incident on Interstate 465

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (IUSTV News) — A teenage girl was shot at after reportedly honking her horn at someone who cut her off on I-465.

According to Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine, the 17-year-old honked her horn at a car that cut her off, which prompted someone in the vehicle to fire “multiple shots” at the girl. The teen was not injured, but bullets did enter the car through the windshield and one went through the driver’s seat. Sgt. Perrine referred to the incident as a case of road rage.
