2 Dead, Suspect Caught in Apparent Oklahoma Highway Road Rage Incident.

ARAPAHO, Okla. (AP) — Two people were killed in separate shootings on a western Oklahoma interstate early Thursday after a man drove through three counties firing randomly from his pickup truck, authorities said. Custer County Sheriff Bruce Peoples said reports came in late Wednesday of a man firing at vehicles on Interstate 40 in Canadian County, which is adjacent to Oklahoma City. The gunman — an unidentified male driver — was arrested early Thursday without incident in Custer County, and was being held in the county jail, authorities said.

The man is being booked in the Custer County jail and authorities have not yet interviewed him to determine a motive, but they don’t suspect anyone was specifically targeted. “He shot so many vehicles that it would have been totally impractical to assume he knew them,” Peoples said, describing the case as a suspected road rage incident.
