Man confronts motorist, is fatally shot

Published: Mon, June 7, 2010 @ 10:15 a.m.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Authorities say an angry driver in Connecticut followed a fellow motorist to his home, drove off and returned later with a friend, who was fatally shot when he approached the home.

Bridgeport police say 21-year-old Jeffrey Parlemon was shot in the lower extremities Sunday afternoon and died at a hospital.

Police say the two other men became involved in the road rage incident just before 4 p.m. One of them drove to a home, and the other followed.

Police say the second driver left and returned shortly with Parlemon, who went up to the house. Police say Parlemon was wearing a mask and the first driver shot him, thinking Parlemon had a gun.

Authorities didn’t identify the shooter or the other driver.

Hope this is a lesson to all enraged drivers. Let it go. Drive defensively, be courteous, and leave other people alone.

Tailgating can be solved by randomly slamming on your brakes. Tailgaters who rear end cars are ALWAYS the at fault party. Enjoy your day.

You're 1/2 right. The key that nullifies this, is in your prior statement as follows:
"Tailgating can be solved by randomly slamming on your brakes."
Sorry to ruin your day, but deliberately causing an accident, not to mention, the possibility of inflicting injuries to yourself and others,is NOT going to be the "tailgater's" fault. The "tailgater" is still a bonehead, and the insurance companies (your's & his/hers) may find you 75% and tailgater 25% at fault, but YOU get the charge, with the ticket. Remember, the scenario is ..after slamming on brakes, and, an accident results, from your intentions, you'd be the real bonehead loser here.
