Posted on 09/22/2019 10:44:48 PM PDT by BenLurkin
The shooting took place about 8:40 a.m. amid a "traffic dispute" between two drivers that took place in the area of Duarte Road and San Gabriel Boulevard...
"The driver of a blue Subaru was allegedly driving erratically in the area," the statement said. "The second driver, in a dark colored Mercedes, pulled alongside the driver of the blue Subaru and attempted to contact the driver."
"The driver of the Mercedes motioned for the driver of the Subaru to roll down his window," according to Cervantes. "At some point during the contact, it is believed that the driver [of] the Subaru suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound to their torso."
The wounded person was identified by several sources as an off-duty Alhambra Police Department officer.
Both San Marino police and Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials declined to comment on reports that the other driver involved in the road rage incident was an off-duty Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy.

This is why the politicos demand law enforcement should be the only ones to be armed.
Shelter in place !
The “authorities” are on their way to save you.
Well, Sept 21 was just 2 days ago... equinox time on the Freeway.
Queue the video of the LEO telling a group of school children that he is the only one authorized to carry a firearm just before shooting himself in the leg.
They should both be put on paid leave until it is determined they did nothing wrong. /s
Road rage? Motion to roll down window?
The autumnal equinox fell on September 23 this year. About 9 minutes after your post, in fact.
Actually today is the autumnal equinox.
I think the Subaru Driver should be charged with attempted murder of a Peace Officer, after all he did shoot the off duty cop in the stomach.
I’d never do it. Not in L.A.
Sounds like that off duty cop had a few drinks in the tank.
