    When a female driver saw this, she pulled into the right lane and then turned into a shopping plaze. That's when things escalated.

    “It was a road rage incident that got way out of hand," said Economy Police Chief Mike O'Brien.

    Polie said when that woman pulled into the lot, DeWitt pulled out a gun as she pulled out her cell phone. She started recording video of what was happening, and police said when DeWitt realized it, he took off.

    She managed to get DeWitt's license plate, and police said they were able to quickly find him.
