Police: Man killed after Phoenix road rage clash

Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a 23-year-old man has died from gunshot wounds following a road rage clash on a Phoenix road.

Phoenix Police Department Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Saturday that Ramiro Valerio died after someone in a green Volkswagen Jetta or Audi opened fire on a Chevrolet Tahoe. Thompson says Valerio was a passenger in the Tahoe.

According to investigators, the Tahoe nearly collided with the green car during a lane merger shortly before midnight Friday. Officials say occupants in both cars exchanged words.

Police say gunshots were heard shortly after the exchange and Valerio was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died.

No arrests have been made.
