GENOA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A family friend says 43-year-old Derek Fleming and his wife were on their way to pick up their children after the first day of school when a 69-year-old man fatally shot him in a road rage attack in southeastern Michigan.
Attorney William Moore tells the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell that he's investigating the 69-year-old shooting suspect, who's in the Livingston County jail awaiting a court appearance.
Undersheriff Mike Murphy says the killing happened about 3:35 p.m. Tuesday in Genoa Township, about 45 miles west-northwest of Detroit.
Murphy tells WHMI-FM two vehicles were eastbound on Grand River when one passed the other. He says both stopped and the 43-year-old got out and walked over to the other vehicle.
Murphy says the 69-year-old then opened fire on him.
