PAULDING COUNTY, Ga. - Investigators say someone fired at least 10 shots in traffic during an apparent road rage incident.

"(He) easily could have killed me, easily," said Aaron Lee.

Deputies have been looking for the suspect since last Tuesday morning.

Cell phone pictures show Lee's work van riddled with bullet holes.

He told Channel 2's Carl Willis that he pulled out of a gas station on Highway 120 East near Macland Road.

He says he must have pulled out in front of the suspect, because the man yelled and cursed at him.

Lee says he yelled back at the driver.

"I get in the fast lane and I think it's over with and the next thing I know it was 10 pops," he said.

Those 10 shots came from a driver in a black Chevy Avalanche.

"One shot hit the tail pipe, two went in the fender well, and the rest were on the side of the van," said Lee.

Highway 120E set the scene for another road rage case in March.

The victim, who did not want to be identified, told Willis the driver in that incident charged at her and cut her off before pulling a gun.

"I can't believe that someone thought that was an acceptable behavior," she said. "I did nothing aggressive."

That driver later turned himself in, but the man  who fired repeatedly at Lee is still out there.

"It's one thing to shoot a bird at somebody, than to shoot 10 rounds at somebody," said Lee.
