Kansas City, Kan., police are asking the public for help to solve a June homicide that they said was sparked by a road rage incident.
Ramon Minjares-Garcia, 24, was fatally shot around 5 a.m. June 19 near 18th Street and Central Avenue.
Police said the driver of another vehicle shot Minjares-Garcia before fleeing from the scene.
Detective Daniel Villalpando called it a “random, senseless act of violence” that could have happened to anybody.
Police described the suspect vehicle as a reddish, smaller SUV. It appeared to be a newer model.
Villalpando said the victim was in a 2006 blue Honda Civic following the SUV on 18th Street from Parallel Parkway. The SUV driver kept hitting his brakes, and the victim’s car passed it.
Three other men were in the car with the victim, and they told police that someone in their car asked the SUV driver what he was doing, or words to that effect.
At Central Avenue, the driver of the SUV fired multiple shots.
Minjares-Garcia, 24, a citizen of the Mexican state of Chihuahua, was taken by private vehicle to a hospital, where he died.
