NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Metro Police said a man was shot and killed on Saturday morning in an apparent case of road rage on Richards Road.

Police responded to a call in the 900 block of Richards Road at 9:50 a.m. and found Emilio Lopez-Lajuj, 33, unresponsive sitting in the driver’s seat of his Toyota Camry with a gunshot wound to his upper left leg. Police said his car was running and still in drive. Lopez-Lajuj died at the scene.

Surveillance video showed that Lopez-Lajuj was slowly driving west on Richards Road when a newer model black Dodge Charger with tinted windows and black wheels drove around the Camry. Lopez-Lajuj then pulled his car up to the Charger and bumped the driver’s side rear quarter panel. Lopez-Lajuj and the other driver got out of their vehicles and appeared to argue for a moment before the shooting. The suspect drove toward I-24 and Haywood Lane.

Metro Police released surveillance video of a possible road rage suspect.
