A Baltimore man who allegedly shot at a vehicle after trying to pass it on Interstate 70 has been charged with attempted second-degree murder and a host of other felonies, according to Maryland State Police in Hagerstown.
Jimmie Johnson, 35, is accused of firing several rounds from a 9 mm handgun at the passenger side of a Chrysler PT Cruiser while traveling east in a Chevrolet Suburban on I-70 near the 22-mile marker about 2 p.m. Monday, police said.
According to police, the rounds did not penetrate the PT Cruiser, which was driven by a 19-year-old Derwood, Md., man, Trooper 1st Class Scott Bare said. An Orange, Va., resident also was traveling in the vehicle, police said.
The incident was reported by witnesses who saw the shooting, police said. Police first spotted the Suburban near the 35-mile marker, and troopers pulled Johnson over in Frederick County, Md., about 10 miles down the road at about 2:20 p.m., Bare said.
