It was just over a month ago that Wayne Dean was shot while driving down Government Street. On May 31 he says a woman pull up next to him and opened fire in an apparent fit of road rage.
“I guess they thought I was going to come in and cut them off or drift in their lane or something and they blew the horn and I stopped at the light and put my arm up like hey I’m sorry and as soon as she pulled up I could see she had a gun and that’s when she fired into my car,” said Dean.
The window of his car shattered and fragments pierced his arm. Dean was able to steer his car into a car wash parking lot at the Loop where and employee called police.
Since the shooting, it’s been a long recovery for Dean. He is still missing feeling in some of his fingers and hasn’t been able to work.
The police are still looking for the shooter. She is described as a black middle aged woman driving a silver car.
