Police don't think this was a random shooting, and they're asking for anyone with information to submit an anonymous tip online to Crime Stoppers, or call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

A man was fatally shot in an apparent road rage incident late Friday night about two miles east of Monday's shooting.

Police say it happened on Franklin Avenue ramp to West River Parkway. A man was driving the wrong way down a one-way road when he was shot at by another motorist. The wrong-way driver then opened fire, killing that motorist.

The shooter was arrested, and police say he claimed to have opened fire in self-defense.
