Man Wounded in Road-Rage Shooting in Cypress; Gunman Sought: Police

Police are investigating a car-to-car shooting in Cypress Sunday night that left one man wounded as road-rage incident.

The incident occurred about 8:45 p.m. when two cars came to a stop at the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and Denni Street, Cypress Police Department Sgt. Miller said.

A gunman riding as a passenger in a dark-colored SUV then opened fire on the vehicle next to them, striking a male passenger at least one time, Miller said.

The victims told investigators that the shooting followed a road-rage confrontation.

A witness who spoke to KTLA said he heard about six shots.

The vehicle with the victim inside was driven about three miles away and pulled into a Motel 6 parking lot, where they were eventually found by Buena Park police.

The shooting victim was alert and transported to a local hospital with injuries that were not considered to be life threatening, Miller said.

A second man and a woman who were also inside the vehicle with the victim were not injured in the shooting.

Authorities are searching for at least two people who were in the SUV, which fled eastbound on Lincoln Avenue after the shooting.

The gunman was described as a black or Latino man wearing a dark shirt and dark pants.
