HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - A 21-year-old Hilton Head Island man has died after being shot in what the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is calling a road-rage incident on the island.

Multiple media outlets report that Rhashard Spikes was pronounced dead early Wednesday after the Tuesday evening incident.

Officials say that before his death, Spikes told investigators he had yelled out his window after a driver travelling in the opposite direction veered into his lane, nearly causing a collision.

Spikes said he and the two passengers in his car later noticed the same silver-colored vehicle trailing them, with the driver firing at least two shots.

Capt. Bob Bromage says Spikes was struck at least once, but a scheduled autopsy could reveal another injury.

Authorities do not have a description of the driver or the passengers in the suspect vehicle.
