On Friday, a nine-year-old boy was shot in Renton and less than a month ago, a 24-year-old woman was shot and killed in a road rage incident in Skykomish.
Law enforcement officials in multiple Western Washington counties are seeing drivers become more aggressive.
“We’ve seen a lot of erratic behavior on our on our roadways,” said Sergeant Darren Moss Jr., the Public Information Officer for the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office.
He said sometimes aggression can progress into violence.
“We’ve had a couple instances of people pulling guns out on someone else or flashing a gun in their window at somebody,” said Sergeant Moss.
He said in Pierce County they have seen an increase in road rage incidents, but not in road rage shootings.
In King County, there have been more road rage incidents involving guns over the past few years. According to Washington State Patrol, King County road rage shootings have been increasing since at least 2017. 2021 was the highest total during that period.
