In a serious case of road rage, an unknown male shot at two Anchor Point residents after a rock supposedly flung from their passing vehicle dinged his car.
Larry Pyatt, 25, and Richard Gibson, 24, were driving home from Kenai on Tuesday evening when they passed a dark blue vehicle on the road. The vehicle, described as a 2009 or 2010 Chevrolet or GMC SUV with after-market rims, tires, and blue-white headlights, followed the two to their home.
After confronting Pyatt and Gibson about the rock-flinging incident, the suspect threatened the two men and proceeded to fire three shots from a handgun. One bullet entered the ground and the two others sailed over their heads.
The suspect was described as a Latino or light-skinned black male between the ages of 25 and 30. Pyatt and Gibson reported their assailant had short hair, a thin black mustache, and was sporting a baseball cap at the time of the incident. The investigation continues.
Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call the Kenai Peninsula Crime Stoppers tip line at 283-TIPS.
