Woman shot in apparent case of road rage

May 26, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Maryland State Police said yesterday they are seeking a driver in an apparent road-rage shooting on southbound Interstate 795 in Owings Mills that left a Hampstead woman with a bullet wound in the foot.

Just before midnight Friday, police say, a motorist pulled alongside a Chevrolet Blazer driven by Everett L. Poole, 32, of Lineboro and fired a single shot into the Blazer's passenger door, grazing the foot of passenger Josie M. Steger, 31, of Hampstead.

The shooter continued south on I-795 as Poole pulled over. Steger was treated at Sinai Hospital and released.

According to Poole, the shooting occurred after the gunman's vehicle, which police would not identify, pulled up swiftly behind Poole, forcing both cars to drive erratically.

Sgt. Denard Allen said that police have identified a suspect.
