Police in Brick are investigating a shots-fired road rage incident on Saturday night. 

Brick Police said at 7:45 P.M. tonight, officers responded to the interchange for a report of shots fired.

Police said the victim called 9-1-1 to report the incident while driving home to their residence in Brick.

According to police, patrol units met with the victim, who was not injured, but police located one bullet in the front passenger side door frame. 

The victim stated he was involved in a road rage incident with two unknown white male subjects driving a newer model red pickup truck with an extended cab.

Police say the incident began on Brick Boulevard when the pickup truck continued to pass the victim and brake checked him several times as they drove down Route 70 east.

While the victim was stopped at the red light at the interchange (70/88), the suspect drove by and fired three rounds toward the passenger side of his vehicle.

Police say the suspect’s vehicle was last seen fleeing the scene eastbound on Route 70, running several red lights.

The victim lost sight of the vehicle in the area of Olden Street. 

According to police, the suspects are described as two white males late 20’s to early ’30s.

Police are seeking information from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or the suspect vehicle or from anyone with a working dashcam who was traveling on Brick Blvd south and Route 70 East between the hours of 7:35 P.M. and 7:55 P.M. and may have captured footage.

The incident is still under investigation.
