Update10/8:
 
Deputies have released the description of a vehicle that they're looking for, after a case of road rage in Marion County ended in a man getting shot last Friday.

Deputies said they're looking for the driver of a tan or gold Chrysler Sebring. This all happened Friday night around 8:30, when an 18-year-old man and his 21-year-old sister were driving on I-79.
 
They got off the East Grafton Road Exit, and that's when another vehicle opened fire on them. One bullet went through the door and grazed the man's back, while the woman somehow got a cut on her elbow.

If you have any information about this, call the Marion County Sheriff's Department at (304) 367-5300.

Doesn't sound like the typical 'road rage' to me. Sounds more like a typical 'hate' crime from one of the crazy nutjobs lately throughout our nation calling for violence on certain persons. They were being followed?? All these out-of-staters coming into our state has caused for the first time, a huge increase in crime in WV. It's not WV citizens doing these stupid unexecusable violent acts against us for no other reason except they want to. Just wait until Corrider is finished. I am still against finishing that highway!!
