Wow that is just messed up.  They both pulled over, the argument turned into a physical altercation, and the young woman pulled out a gun to shot the man.  Maybe in self-defense mode at that point?  This article sure leaves a lot of details unsaid.

^ True.  A lot isn't said in that. 

Nice bike and good gear.  Wondering if she was an off-duty peace officer.

Ride on,

Odd that I can't find updates on the story.

The last time I heard, she was detained then released and no charge was filed.

^ That.  She still hasn't been charged that I can find.  So...  It's looking more and more like a justified shoot. 

I did notice that the EMT people pronounced him dead at the scene.  That means it was a head shot.  I've seen it posted that he had a dash-cam and that the footage of the incident was recorded, so that may have played a part (along with what the witnesses said).

It sucks that it had to happen...

Grappling with the aggressor, and still managing a close-contact shot?  Wow...

She must have the least bit of training.

No charges for woman who fatally shot I-5 driver during road-rage incident, prosecutors say

A woman who fatally shot a man on a shoulder of Interstate 5 during a road-rage incident last month will not be charged, the Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office said Friday.

The 23-year-old woman acted in self defense, prosecutors said. The News Tribune has chosen not to publish her name because she was never arrested or charged with a crime.

Witnesses said the man, 60-year-old Bruce W. Jones, was upset with how the woman was driving her motorcycle Feb. 8 on the southbound freeway near the King-Pierce County line in Milton. He tried to box the woman in with his 2016 GMC Terrain, then got out of his vehicle and “aggressively approached her on the shoulder of Interstate 5,” the Prosecutor’s Office said in a news release.

Jones started a fight with the woman and at some point she head-butted him. Jones then slammed the woman’s head into a jersey barrier and took her to the ground.

As Jones tried to climb on top of her, she shot him in the chest with a handgun. He died at the scene.

The motorcyclist, who had a concealed pistol license, called 911 and waited for investigators.

If she had a CCW, she had to have some training in order to get it.  Glad it worked out for her.

Ride on,

Never pick a fight with someone when you have no clue what they are capable of. You would think by 60 he would have learned that lesson.
