Officials said that a California father was killed in a road-rage incident, while his children and wife were inside the vehicle.
Marco Lara Jr. was driving north on Interstate 15 Thursday evening when another driver brake-checked him several times, his wife Katelyn told NBC Los Angeles.
Lara was repeatedly shot by an unknown driver after the two pulled over at an offramp in Victorville. This is 40 miles north from San Bernardino. According to the California Highway Patrol,
CHP reported that the unidentified attacker fired multiple shots at Lara before fleeing by car.
Lara's wife, Lara, told NBC Los Angeles that her husband was delivering meals and that she and their 4-year old daughter were there to witness the shooting.
He stood up for what was right at the time. She said that he believed he could solve the problem with the other vehicle.
Their 1-year old son was also riding in the car. Lara's wife claimed that she couldn't see the shooter or the car due to the darkness.
Officials stated that the investigation was ongoing.
