A man killed in a shooting in Carroll County was the first to pull out his gun

Road rage turned deadly over the weekend when a Carrolton man was shot and killed near Interstate 71 in Carroll County. “Unfortunately road rage is becoming very common and we don’t want something like this to happen in our community,” KSP Trooper Chad Johnson told WLKY. KSP identified the man killed as Daniel Shouse. Laura Wilson, who lives close to the house and attended the same church as the victim, was the fatal incident. “he was very, very nice, very sweet, very, you know, nice to say, didn’t seem like he had anything wrong with him,” Wilson said. But road rage can happen to anyone, according to Johnson. , Saturday’s shooting involved Shouse and another driver. “I’m not sure what caused either or both of them to be irritated,” Johnson said. Investigators said both drivers were traveling south on I-71 around 7 p.m. when Shouse passed the second vehicle. The driver called 911 and told police that Shouse had pulled out a gun. Johnson then said both vehicles took Exit 43 onto KY 389. At some point after leaving the on-ramp, Johnson said Shouse turned around and returned to the other driver. Then the confrontation escalated and shots were fired. Both drivers were in their vehicles at the time. “We have reason to believe there were firearms in both vehicles,” Johnson said. The second driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with the KSP investigation. “It comes down to, you know, don’t get road rage, don’t, you know, take another person’s life,” Wilson said. The Carroll County Attorney’s Office will decide whether charges will be filed.

Road rage turned deadly over the weekend when a Carrolton man was shot and killed on Interstate 71 in Carroll County.

“Unfortunately, road rage is becoming very common and we don’t want something like this to happen in our community,” KSP Trooper Chad Johnson told WLKY.

KSP identified the man killed as Daniel Shouse.

The fatal incident occurred close to the home of Laura Wilson, who lives nearby and attended the same church as the victim.

“From what I knew about him, he was very, very nice, very sweet, very, you know, nice to say. It didn’t seem like there was anything wrong with him,” Wilson said.

But road rage can hit anyone, and Johnson said Saturday’s shooting involved Shouse and another driver.

“I’m not sure what made one or both of them so upset,” Johnson said.

Investigators said both drivers were traveling south on I-71 around 7 p.m. when Shouse passed the second vehicle. The driver called 911 and told police that Shouse had pulled out a gun. Johnson then said both vehicles took exit 43 onto KY 389.

At some point after leaving the ramp, Johnson said Shouse turned around and approached the other driver. Then the confrontation escalated and shots were fired.

Both drivers were in their vehicles at the time.

“We have reason to believe there were firearms in both vehicles,” Johnson said.

The second driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with KSP in the investigation.

“It just comes down to not having road rage and not, you know, taking another person’s life,” Wilson said.

The Carroll County Attorney’s Office will decide whether charges will be filed.
