Road rage sparks gun complaint on North Kings Highway

A motorist told police that a man in a Cadillac cut him off, but when he protested the aggressive move, the man pulled a gun.

An 18-year-old man said he was traveling north near 6100 North Kings Highway around 12:22 a.m. Sunday when an unknown white male in a white Cadillac cut him off, according to a police report.

When the victim honked his horn at the Cadillac, the car pulled up beside him and the suspect “started cursing and yelling … and waived a gun at them,” he told police. The suspect then sped away as the victim pulled over to call police, the report stated.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

This was the second reported incident this weekend where a motorist pulled a gun on another person. A passenger from a car blocking an intersection at Harrelson Boulevard Friday afternoon pointed a gun at a victim after other drivers became irritated at the traffic jam, according to a Myrtle Beach incident report.
