NC man pulls gun in violent road rage fight

Posted: Updated:
NEWPORT, NC (WFLA) -

A Lenoir County couple is behind bars tonight for allegedly attacking a driver in a violent case of road rage.

Deputies say 40-year-old Bradley Turner from La Grange took out his anger Sunday morning at another man who cut him off while driving.

Turner allegedly started punching his victim, a man in a white baseball cap, after following him from James City to his house in Newport. The victim's friend shot cell phone video of the whole thing.

Eventually the suspect's wife, 30-year-old Christy Turner, came out with a gun.

Deputies say her husband shot at his victims, missing them, but hitting the victim's car and a neighbor's home.

"That's a big concern, because you never know what will come up next," said Antonio Suban, whose home was damaged from the gunfire.

Deputies say Bradley and Christy Turner turned themselves into the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office this afternoon.

Turner has been charged with discharging a weapon into property, two counts of assault by pointing a gun, Going Armed to the Terror of People, Injury to Personal Property and Assault.  Christy Turner has been charged with two counts of assault by pointing a gun.

Deputies have released video from a shooting they say was the result of road rage.

It happened around 1 o'clock Sunday on Highway 70 near English Street in Newport.

Deputies say the shooting was a result of road rage that started on the highway in the James City area of Craven County.

Investigators want to track down the driver of the vehicle, a female passenger, and a toddler.

Video obtained by the sheriff's office shows what happened just before the driver allegedly fired several rounds at the other vehicle. The suspect confronts the other driver, punching at one of them, before two people leap out and attack him. A woman comes to his aid with a handgun, handing it to the suspect, who then confronts his attackers. He then takes off with the woman, and a toddler.

Now deputies are looking for an ash or gray colored SUV. The Carteret County Sheriff's Office is urging the family wanted for questioning to call them.

If you know where this family is, call the Sheriffs Office at (252) 504-4800 or the Carteret County Communications Center at (252) 726-1911.
