An investigation is underway into the death of a motorcycle rider
A “road rage” incident occurred between Hendricks and people inside a red Nissan while he and a group of motorcycle riders were riding along Main Street.
When two vehicles stopped at Sossaman and Main, there was an argument between them. When the shot was fired, Hendricks was just a few feet away.
Police reported that the red Nissan fled eastbound on Main Street after the shooting.
It is believed that witnesses described the driver and the passenger.
The officers also looked at video from a witness’s dashcam, which helped them identify the Nissan and locate it.
A road rage altercation between the driver and Sereghy was reported to the authorities.
In a release, Sereghy stated that he was afraid of being assaulted by the motorcyclists, so he shot Arron after he ‘lost his temper’ when they yelled and cussed at him and because Arron ‘spit at him’.
