TUKWILA, Wash. — A man driving on Interstate 405 was shot in the arm by another driver in an apparent road rage incident Thursday afternoon, Tukwila police said.

The shooting occurred on southbound I-405 just north of I-5.

The Washington State Patrol said the suspect vehicle is a gold Toyota Camry or Corolla.

A similar car was pulled over on I-5 near Tacoma in connection with the shooting, but the State Patrol said it was not clear yet if the driver is the suspect in the case.
