SELMA, Ore. — A Selma man is in jail following a "road rage incident" where he fired shots at another vehicle, according to the Josephine County Sheriff's Office (JCSO).

JCSO dispatch received reports of shots fired in a road rage incident on Highway 199 at Hayes Hill just after 2:15 p.m. on Sunday. Deputies met up with the victims at a location on Hogue Drive in Selma and took down their statements.

Investigation revealed that gunshots had been fired into the rear bumper of the victims' vehicle as they drove southbound on Hwy 199. No one was injured in the vehicle.

Deputies were able to track down a suspect, later identified as Frederick Savage III. According to JCSO, Savage told them that he had been upset with the victims' "erratic driving," which led to him to begin firing upon them.

Savage was arrested without incident and lodged in the Josephine County Jail on three counts of Attempted Assault 1, three counts of Reckless Endangering, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and Criminal Mischief 1.
