UPDATE (October 2, 2018 8:20 p.m.):

Detectives from the Baltimore County Violent Crimes Unit were able to speak today with the victim of the shooting on I-695, who provided updated information on the occupants of the dark colored Nissan sedan.

The victim advised that the driver was actually the black male subject and that the front passenger was a white woman wearing a yellow shirt.

Police continue to ask that any potential witnesses come forward with any information they may have. If you were on I-695 eastbound/inner loop around noon and recall seeing a white van or a dark colored Nissan driving aggressively in the Towson or Parkville area, please contact police by calling 410-307-2020.

UPDATE (September 30, 2018 1:05 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police continues to seek information regarding the suspect who shot a 58-year-old woman in a road rage incident on the Baltimore Beltway just after noon yesterday.

The woman had just merged onto the inner loop from Harford Road in front of the suspect, who was driving a dark colored Nissan with dark window tint at a high rate of speed in the right lane. The driver of the Nissan moved into the center lane and slowed down abruptly in front of a white work van. As the woman drove past the Nissan in the right lane a single gunshot was heard. The woman stopped her vehicle, a gray Subaru Outback, on the shoulder of I-695 after realizing she had been struck by the gunfire and waited for first responders to arrive. She remains hospitalized with a life-threatening wound to the upper body and is currently listed in critical but stable condition.

Detectives are now turning their attention to locating any witnesses that can provide additional information on this incident.

The incident occurred on the eastbound/inner loop of I-695 approaching Harford Road in the Parkville area. It is possible that the road rage incident between the Nissan and the white work van could have occurred on eastbound I-695 prior to entering the Parkville area. Following the shooting the white work van continued traveling eastbound on I-695 but the Nissan is believed to have exited I-695 at Route 43/White Marsh Boulevard.

Detectives are also asking for help with identifying the driver of the white work van, who may have been the first victim of the road rage. The van is described as being a full sized work-type van with no rear windows and no company markings or logos. This driver is sought only as a witness to the events who may have critical information regarding the suspect vehicle.

Again, the suspect vehicle is believed to be a 2002-2006 model Nissan with dark tinted rear windows. The front windows were rolled down so it is unclear if those are dark tinted, as well. The Nissan has been described as dark colored, possibly black or gray. It has also been described as possibly a Nissan Maxima or a Nissan Altima. There was a young looking black male passenger in the Nissan, but no description of the driver.

Everyone who was driving eastbound on I-695 in the Towson/Parkville/White Marsh area who may have seen a white work van or dark colored Nissan sedan driving erratically is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020. Anyone who may have additional information on this case is also asked to contact police. Callers may remain anonymous.

This incident is believed to have occurred on the inner loop of I-695 at the Harford Road exit (Exit 31/MD 147).
