Motorist shot in road rage incident. Nothing special about that story except it happens to be a cyclist doing the shooting and it happened in Canada. The majority of law abiding citizens here don't go around carrying a gun with them and wouldn't expect to get shot at in a situation like this (road rage), especially from a cyclist! I sure as hell wouldn't want to be a cyclist living in Edmonton right now. They'll be fair game for every chevy-driving redneck out there until they catch this guy.
Ride-by shooter may have brandished gun before

EDMONTON - A cyclist who shot a driver during an argument in the street Thursday evening may be the same man who pointed a gun at another motorist five weeks ago.
The circumstances and description of the cyclist are similar in both incidents, said police spokesman Wes Bellmore.
Witnesses on Thursday saw a man on a mountain bike riding slowly north along the sidewalk on 95A Street near 112th Avenue around 6 p.m.
The cyclist was seen arguing with two men in a car that was driving slowly along the street in the same direction.
The cyclist stopped, pulled out a handgun and fired four shots at the car, before riding off.
The driver, with a bullet lodged in his right hand, drove two blocks north, then turned onto 114th Avenue.
An ambulance arrived shortly afterward and took the man to hospital, where the bullet was removed.
On Sept. 26, in the same area as Thursday's shooting, a driver reported that he was cut off by a man riding a mountain bike.
The two got into an argument and the driver got out of his car to confront the cyclist, who pulled a handgun from his coat and pointed it. The motorist jumped back in his car and drove off.
The suspect in that incident, which happened around 9 a.m., was described as white with a goatee and dark hair with flecks of grey. He was wearing a black jacket and jeans.
In Thursday's incident, investigators say the men in the car did not know the shooter.
The gunman was described as a white male with a full head of dark hair and a goatee. He rode a mountain bike.
