SOUTHFIELD — Police are looking for a man they say is responsible for shooting at another driver Dec. 4.

According to a police report, around 5:13 p.m. that day, officers were dispatched to the area of southbound Southfield Road and 10 Mile Road on a report of a shooting.

A woman told police that she may have cut off a vehicle that was in traffic. The vehicle in question, which was a red sedan, pulled in front of her and stopped in the middle of the road, the woman said.

The woman told police that she then drove around the vehicle and proceeded to drive slowly in front of him.

At this point, the man driving the red sedan drove up to the passenger side of the woman’s car and pointed a small black handgun at her, firing one round at the passenger side window.

Police said the woman was not hit by the shot and was not injured.

A Southfield Police Department evidence technician processed the scene but was unable to locate the projectile.

Police said the man could have shot a BB or a pellet gun, as there was no damage to the inside of the vehicle.

The suspect is described as a younger black man driving a red sedan.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call the Southfield Police Department at (248) 796-5500.
