A Hixson man said his pickup truck was riddled by bullets in an apparent road rage incident.
Joel Loftis said he was stopped near Publix when another vehicle pulled up and a man gave him a scowl. He said after he pulled out from the light the man threw beer cans and bottles at him.
He said when he again got beside the vehicle he found himself confronted with an assault rifle. Numerous shots were then fired into the pickup.
The shooting victim said a school bus was nearby during the gunfire.
