Police search for man connected to road rage incident in Woodbridge

Police say a man opened fire on another driver, and the victim rammed the armed driver's car to try to get him to stop.

WOODBRIDGE, Va. — Police are asking for the public's help finding a man they say is connected to a chaotic road rage shooting on Jefferson Davis Highway earlier this month.

Prince William County Police officers responded to a report of a shooting on May 6 just before 3 p.m. in the area of Jefferson Davis Highway and Dale Boulevard in Woodbridge. 

The victim, an unidentified 47-year-old man, told police that he was involved in a road rage incident with the driver of a gray Honda Accord while driving on Dale Boulevard, approaching Neabsco Mills Road.

During the encounter, the Accord driver fired multiple shots toward the victim's vehicle, police said. The suspect drove past the victim's vehicle and turned onto Jefferson Davis Highway. As both drivers approached the intersection of Jefferson Davis Highway and Neabsco Mills Road, the victim drove the front of his car into the rear of the Honda in an attempt to get the armed driver to stop, police said.

As the two cars continued down the road, the victim rammed the Honda a second time, and the armed driver fired at the victim again, striking the victim's vehicle and disabling it, police said. 

The victim pulled to the side of the road and contacted police. No injuries or additional property damage were reported.

Officers have identified 21-year-old Meliodas Catori Okami Scindian as the suspect in this case. He is wanted on charges of shooting into an occupied vehicle, attempted aggravated malicious wounding, shooting from a vehicle, and hit and run.

If you know where Scindian is, contact police at 703-792-6500.
