DECATUR, Ga. - DeKalb Police are searching for a suspect who shot and killed a man in a road rage incident.
At 11:55 p.m. on Wednesday, a vehicle carrying three people was traveling on Memorial Drive and proceeded to turn south on Columbia Drive, cutting off another vehicle.
The car that was cut off then pulled up beside the car driven by 22-year-old Cedric Williams of Decatur and began to shoot into the vehicle.
After being fatally shot, Williams veered the car off the road and crashed into the home of Nico Towe.
Towe said he was sleeping when the car crashed into his home. He said the vehicle clipped his two parked cars and crashed into the utility room and through the back wall. Thankfully, no one inside the home was injured.
“My partner woke me up screaming because he said a car hit the house,” Towe said. “People were trapped inside. We didn't know at the time that it was because someone got shot, we just knew that the car hit the house. “
Towe called 911 and helped get the two female passengers out of the car.
Police said Williams died on scene and the women were not injured. They were 20 and 39-years-old.
"We've seen a few of these road rage incidents this year and unfortunately, this is not something that you should feel the need to hurt somebody else over," Lt. Lonzy Robertson said. "People make mistakes on the roadway. It's just one of those things and you just keep going. It's very unfortunate this person lost his life or something so simple."
“It's just terrible,” Towe said. “It happened because of senseless violence.”
Police continue to search for the suspect and said he is a black male possibly wearing dreds.
