A Buford man was arrested following a road rage incident along Buford Drive in which the suspect and two other men sustained non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.
Just after 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 15, officers with the Gwinnett County Police Department responded to a call that stated a person had been shot at a UHaul rental location located at 3820 Buford Drive in Buford.
Upon arrival, officers came into contact with Shormoi Martin, 25, of Buford, who had a gunshot wound to his leg. Martin, the driver of a black Honda Accord, was uncooperative when officers began to question him about the gunshot wound to his leg while he was being given medical aid.
Officers learned of a white work van that had been driven to a nearby fire station seeking medical assistance for gunshot wounds that both the driver and passenger had sustained. The driver was shot in the leg while the passenger had been shot in the chest.
In a statement released by police, it was determined that both Martin and the driver of the white work van had pulled into the UHaul location to continue a “dispute over something that occurred on the road while they were driving.”
According to police, Martin began shooting at the white work van from inside of his Honda Accord. The driver of the white work van then tried to stop Martin from leaving the parking lot, at which time Martin got out of his car and began to shoot into the van again. The passenger of the van then grabbed a gun and shot toward Martin, hitting him in the leg.
All three men are being treated at a nearby hospital for their injuries and are reported to be in stable condition.
