OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are searching for a man who allegedly shot out a man’s back windshield after case of road rage took a terrifying turn.

It happened Monday night near S.E. 89th and Bryant.

“I’ve had incidents where I’ve been shot at and what not, but it’s never been point-blank range, right in my face,” Dustin Gregg told News 4.

Gregg said it all happened so fast. He was trying to turn into his neighborhood when things took a turn for the worse.

“On my way to pull into the trailer park, this guy pulls out and swerves his car at me. So, I waved my hands up like, what are you doing man?” Gregg said.

Gregg said that’s when the man got out of his car, pulled out a gun and pointed it through his window at Gregg’s head.

The suspect then allegedly said “What do you think about this mother F*****?”

“Aims it at my head and I just punched the gas and before his arm left the window, he put one through the back of the windshield. And as I was driving, he put two more through the back of the windshield as I was driving off,” Gregg said.

The bullets narrowly missed Gregg. However, his back windshield is now shattered.

“The only thing I could think of was drive away and grab my gun, but I didn’t even have time for that. By the time I drove off, he was already headed in the opposite direction at a high rate of speed,” Gregg said.

So far, police have not located the suspect.

“Any time you’ve got bullets flying around in a neighborhood randomly like that, it`s a very dangerous situation and we`re very fortunate that this didn’t turn into something more tragic,” MSgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department said.

Gregg said even though it was a horrific close call, he’s thankful that his two young kids weren’t with him in their cars seats in the back seat.

“Thank God he was a lousy shot and hopefully that doesn’t happen again,” Gregg said.

The suspect is described as a white male, about 6’2 in height, weighs around 165 pounds and is believed to be around 35 years old. He was last seen driving a tan four-door vehicle, possible a Lincoln town car.
