LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. (AP) - A Lee’s Summit man has been charged in an apparent road rage incident near an interstate that escalated into shots being fired, police said.

Joseph Terry, 54, was charged Friday with unlawful use of a weapon, first-degree assault and two counts of armed criminal action.

Police said the confrontation Thursday evening began on an exit ramp from Interstate 470 in Lee’s Summit when a vehicle pulled ahead of another car and stopped abruptly, causing the second driver to rear-end him.

The victim’s vehicle spun onto the shoulder. Witnesses said Terry then hit the vehicle and fired several shots into it, police said.

The victim suffered minor injuries from the crash and a graze wound from a bullet, police said.

Online court records do not name an attorney for Terry.
