Detectives in Canyon Country are looking for a man who allegedly shot an SUV tire during an apparent road rage incident, officials said.

The incident began Monday about 6:30 p.m. at the intersection of Soledad Canyon Road and River Circle, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department officials said in a news release.

A woman driving the SUV with three other family members inside told police that she had activated her windshield washer nozzles to wash her windshield when the suspect pulled alongside her and told her to roll down her window.

The man then yelled at her that she had gotten his new car wet. The victim apologized and rolled her window back up, but the suspect took out a gun and shot one of the vehicle’s tires, officials said.

She was able to pull over after her tire was shot and no one in the vehicle was injured, Sgt. Ron Price said.

The man, described as being between 20 and 30 years old with a goatee, then continued west on Soledad Canyon Road and out of view, according to the news release. No one else was with him in the car, Price said.

The suspect’s car was described as a gray Honda Civic with paper plates.

The incident was captured by someone that was traveling behind both vehicles.

Anyone with information about the incident can call 661 255-1121 ext. 5131
