OH: Driver involved in "Road Rage" incident Claims Self Defense

In a 911 call Friday night, a man said he shot and killed someone on Interstate 275 in self-defense.

Eric Duke, 47, was killed in the shooting, Colerain police said Monday. 

Colerain police spokesman James Love said Duke and another person were involved in a collision due to "road rage" on the highway. After the collision, there was a confrontation and Duke was fatally shot, Love said.

In the 911 call, the man, who has not been identified by police, says he was trying to get away from a reckless driver when the other vehicle stopped in front of him in the fast lane and reversed into him.

The caller was sobbing as he said the other man, who police have now identified as Duke, got out of his vehicle. The caller said Duke was trying to open his door and was pounding on his window.
