Extreme road rage leads to Florida man's death

A manhunt is underway this morning for a gunman who shot a driver to death on a Florida highway on Saturday.

It happened during the victim's frantic 911 call to police, saying another driver was threatening him with a gun. The deadly shots were captured on that call.

CNN's Holly Firfer has more.

“A Saturday shopping trip turned deadly for Fred William Turner Jr. after he was gunned down on Interstate 4 in Tampa—yet, another unexplained incident of alleged road rage,” Firfer reports.

“In fact, according to AAA, there were 1,300 road rage incidents last year alone. In 300 of those, someone died.”

    I wonder how many road rage deaths are attributable to guns? My guess, not very many.
