“Low life” brandishes gun in road rage: At 2:16 p.m. June 23 in the 100 block of South 348th Street, a victim said, while driving westbound on South 348th Street, he saw a white Volkswagon GTI cut off other vehicles in traffic. As they were stopped next to each other at a light, they got into an argument about the way the driver in the Volkswagon was driving. The victim said he told the driver to pull over. The suspect then produced a black handgun and held it on top of his steering wheel. When the light turned green, the two drove off in different directions. The victim didn’t get the license plate, but he did see the back of the suspect’s vehicle had a sticker that said “low life” on the back window.
