Dekalb County, GA (PPN) – Road rage between two men involved in a fender-bender on Interstate 285 turned deadly.
The pickup truck rear-ended the driver of the sedan near Highway 78 just before 5:30 p.m. on Monday and things quickly got out of hand.
“The driver of the sedan got out of his vehicle and approached the driver of the pickup truck, the driver of the pickup truck fired one shot,” said DeKalb County Police spokeswoman Shiera Cambell.
Johnnie Hudson Jr., 39, of Decatur, GA was driving his Dodge pick up truck when a silver Lexus sedan crashed into the back of his vehicle. An argument between Hudson and Chris Ervin, 32, ensued after the car accident.
A witness, Frank Kovagh, pulled over and approached Hudson. Hudson told him to call 911, “I just shot him,” he told the witness, according to Boston news.
Ervin was the father of three children. Earlier that morning before he was killed, he made a post on Facebook saying that he was “lucky to be alive”.
“I observed the victim’s lifeless body lying next to the left front tire of a tan Dodge pick-up truck,” DeKalb County Police Officer G. Sampson stated in the incident report.
Hudson was sitting in his truck when he shot Ervin through the closed driver side window. He stayed on the scene and waited for authorities to arrive.
“He was standing in the grassy area,” said Campbell. “There were two officers, one off duty and another in the area who stopped at the scene and took him into custody.”
Once the cops arrived, Hudson asked if Ervin was still alive as he was being arrested. Ervin died on the scene and Hudson was taken into custody.
