Sheriff’s Office Investigating Apparent Road Rage Incident

The Saline County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a road rage incident in which shots may have been fired.

Capt. Jim Hughes tells The Salina Scoop that law enforcement officers were sent to Iron Skillet, 2301 N. 9th, at 7:40 p.m. Thursday evening to meet with a victim that claimed shots had been fired at them during the road rage incident.

The victim told deputies the incident occurred in the area of Pleasant Hill and Tressin Roads between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. There were no injuries resulting from the incident and no damage to the victim’s vehicle.

Hughes said it has not been determined if shots were actually fired and no shell casings had been found as of this morning. He said investigators returned to the scene Friday morning, but weather conditions were hampering efforts to locate any evidence.

The Sheriff’s Office is requesting the public’s help to locate two individuals that may have witnessed the incident. The two individuals were driving a two-tone maroon Ford pickup, which was seen in the area of the incident, according to Hughes.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 785-826-6500.
