JOPPA, Md. (WJZ)– Maryland State Police are investigating a road rage incident where a driver possibly fired three gun shots from his moving car on the interstate.

The incident took place just before 4 p.m. Wednesday on Northbound I-95 a mile south of the Mountain Road exit in Joppa. Police say the suspect, identified as Nicholas Heider, 34, is now in custody. He is being charged with first-degree assault and reckless endangerment.

There were no injuries as a result of the shooting and I-95 was not shut down after this incident.

Police say this resulted from a dispute over which driver had the right-of-way and the two drivers were gesturing at each other and cutting each other off.

Authorities say the victim gave them the license plate number of Heider’s SUV, which they found in the driveway of Heider’s home. Police say Heider surrendered to authorities. Police say a semi-automatic handgun was recovered from his home.
