2 Atlanta men charged in road rage shooting

ATLANTA — Police say two men have been charged with aggravated assault and reckless conduct after shots were fired at a pickup truck in what police say was a road rage incident on Interstate Highway 285.

The pickup's driver, identified by police as Mikos Wright, says he was exiting the highway in southwest Atlanta on Monday when he heard a popping noise and saw the driver of a car that had pulled alongside pointing a gun at him.

Wright said the other driver, identified as Bobby Smith, fired three shots into his passenger door. Wright said he then struck the car with his pickup.

Smith told police Wright's truck forced his car into the emergency lane and knocked it into a guardrail, and that he fired his gun because he feared for his safety. Both vehicles were impounded by police.
