PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Philadelphia police are looking for the driver who pulled a gun and shot at another car during a road rage incident earlier this week. 

It was a little after noon Tuesday when one car cut off another near Krewstown Road and Algon Avenue near Pennypack Park. Words were exchanged. 

Lt. Dennis Rosenbaum says then the passenger in a Pontiac Grand Prix spit at the other car and both drivers went their separate ways. But it wasn't over yet. The victim encountered the Grand Prix again.

"Right near Landgon Street, they saw the car again. This time the driver was waving a gun out of the car," Rosenbaum said. "Obviously they stopped, because they were in fear. And the driver then fires a shot directly at them."

A shell casing was recovered and the Grand Prix was spotted in surveillance video.

Police are searching for a gray 2004-2008 model Grand Prix, four-door sedan, with tinted windows, a moon roof and five-spoke wheels. Authorities want to hear from anyone who has information on the car. Contact Northeast Detectives at 215-686-3153.

Police advise anyone who encounters the car to not approach the suspects. Instead, call 911.
