An outrageous case of road rage.

Quote:
BROCKTON, Massachusetts (AP) -- A man lifting his infant daughter out of his car was killed in an apparent case of road rage by a motorist "who obviously exploded" and shot him four times at close range in front of dozens of witnesses, authorities said.

The victim's 10-month-old girl was covered with blood but uninjured when police found her in a car seat on the floor of the vehicle.

Walter R. Bishop, 60, who was taking medication for depression, was arrested Tuesday and charged with first-degree murder in the death of 27-year-old Sandro Andrade. He pleaded innocent and was ordered held without bail; a hearing was scheduled for August 26.

Plymouth District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz said Bishop had made a calculated decision to "shoot a man in cold blood in broad daylight on the streets of Brockton."

Police Chief Paul Studenski described it as a case of road rage.

Bishop's attorney, Kevin Reddington, said Andrade had provoked his client during a traffic altercation.

"We have a homicide that resulted from a circumstance where somebody picked a fight with an individual who obviously exploded," Reddington said. Bishop, a former soldier and security guard, had recently begun taking two medications for depression, he said.

Bishop told investigators he was driving his wife to the train station when Andrade's vehicle backed toward him on Main Street, Cruz said. The two exchanged heated words.

"He said his wife was scared, and he said he was angry at that encounter," Cruz said of Bishop. "He said he made up his mind right there that he had to do something."

After dropping his wife off, he allegedly returned to the scene of the confrontation, pointed a handgun through an open window and fired, police said.

"Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Four shots. It sounded like a cap gun," Louis McPhee, the manager of a car wash across the street, told The Boston Globe. "The guy was lying there in his own blood with a hole in his head and his arm still on the baby."

Bishop left before police arrived, but witnesses gave investigators his license plate number and police found him at his home.

Police said Bishop has a valid handgun license.

Although this is an extremely sad situation we must remember that the little one is only 10 months old. Luckily she probably won't remember it.

As for the bastard that took her father away, may he rot in hell.

Re: An outrageous case of road rage.

Sheesh, if the old geezer gets out of this. My excuse for traffic violation everytime will be "The depression pills made me do it".

As for the lil girl, I think she's old enough to have the traumatize images like this imprinted in her mind forever.

Re: An outrageous case of road rage.

There are two sides to every story, and all though that bastard should rot in hell, I'm sure he (over his years) has had more then plenty of horrible encounters. For a man to just turn like that, he must've had some f'ed up things happen to him.

I feel bad for the child more than I do for the man that got shot. I mean, he shouldn't have been driving like that w/ the child in the car to begin with.
