MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)--- Madison Police are searching for a man they said pointed a gun at a mother and her daughter after a road rage incident on Monday morning.

The Madison Police Department said the 39-year-old woman and 18-year-old woman were at East Washington Avenue at a red light around 9:25 a.m. when it happened. The weapon came into play after the victim gave the finger to the suspect in an SUV.

The victim said she did this because he began honking his horn after she was too slow to accelerate when a red light turned green. The man pulled up alongside her car, which caused her to pull into another traffic lane. After they stopped at the red light, the suspect pulled out a gun while screaming something similar to “What’s up b?” The man drove away and the victim pulled over to call 911.

Police described the suspect as a black man in his 30’s with a dark complexion, 6’1” and 200 pounds. He was wearing a neon yellow shirt and driving a gray Mazda CX-5.

Anyone with information should contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at (608) 266-6014.
