COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A man was shot in the leg during what Springs police are calling a road rage incident in the east part of the city.

The victim vehicle was in the area of Constitution Avenue and Circle Drive just after 9 Wednesday night when an irate driver in a silver car pulled up alongside it. The driver reportedly began cursing at the people in the victim vehicle and flipping off the driver. He then pulled out a gun and fired towards that vehicle, hitting one of the backseat passengers.

The victim was taken to a nearby Wendy's and help was called. His injuries were not life-threatening.

The suspect was only described as an older white man with white or gray hair. He was reportedly driving a silver Chevy Malibu and possibly armed with a silver handgun.

Police didn't believe there was a danger to the public.
