Heart-stopping cellphone footage has emerged showing a man jumping out of a car in Massachusetts and opening fire at a driver who had rammed the gunman’s vehicle moments earlier.
The incident took place at 5.30pm on Sunday on the busy Route 138 in Canton. No injuries were reported.
Canton Police Chief Ken Berkowitz said that the shooting was targeted and not a random act of violence sparked by road rage.
Cellphone video captured a violent incident involved these two cars traveling on Route 138 in Canton, Massachusetts, on Sunday evening
In the video, the blue sedan rams the grey car in front of it, causing it to spin out
The grey vehicle crashes into a snowbank at the intersection
A person riding in a vehicle at the time of the confrontation recorded video on his phone that shows a blue sedan ram a grey car traveling directly in front of it.
The grey car spins out of control and careens into a snowbank on the right side of the road.
A man emerges from the passenger side of the grey car holding a gun in his hand, walks towards the blue car on the other side of the road and opens fire.
The video ends abruptly as the audibly startled person recording it exclaims: ‘holy s***!’
According to the police, both vehicles involved in the incident fled the scene.
Officers later found the blue and grey sedans, which they said were rented vehicles, abandoned in different parts of Canton, reported WHDH. One of them was riddled with six bullet holes.

The gunman opens fire, shooting multiple rounds in the middle of the busy road
The occupants of the cars had fled on foot. Police say they do not believe anyone suffered gunshot wounds.
Chief Berkowitz said the people in the vehicles likely knew each other and the shooting was ‘intended.’
The gunman and his purported target have been tentatively identified but have not been arrested as of Friday, reported NECN.
Berkowitz, who said he was left feeling ‘disgusted’ by the brazen actions of the gunman who opened fire in broad daylight in the middle of a busy road, called on the perpetrators to turn themselves in.
‘We’re pretty sure we know who you are, so save us the mileage on the trip to come get you,’ Berkowitz said, addressing the unnamed suspects directly.
