Police say road rage involving guns happened twice in one day in a Mississippi city.
Ridgeland police tell news outlets that both happened Thursday and three people were taken to a hospital, while one man was arrested.
Police Chief John Neal says two women and a 13-year-old girl who is one woman’s daughter were hospitalized after one woman driving brandished a gun at another vehicle and lost control.
The car flipped but it’s unclear what condition the three are in. Neal says they’ll be charged.
He says 37-year-old Larry Horton pulled next to a car and shot at another driver.
Horton is jailed on gun charges. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer who could comment.
Neal says he wants legislation passed revoking some driving privileges for road rage convictions.
