DRACUT, MASS. (WHDH) - Police are looking to identify a driver accused of firing a gun at a family during a road rage incident in Dracut on Saturday.

The suspect then allegedly passed her vehicle and slammed on his brakes.
The woman told officers that she attempted to maneuver her vehicle around the suspect’s when the suspect exit his car and shot at her vehicle, police said.
“We were in the house and heard shots go off,” said neighbor Kevin Whittingham, who said he ran outside to see what happened. “[The suspect] went to pick up something, shell casings or maybe he dropped the gun, and then he zipped off.”
There were no reported injuries and the suspect allegedly drove away.
He was described as a young, thin 5-foot, 10-inch Hispanic man wearing a white tank top and red shorts and driving a light blue Honda CRV.
An investigation remains ongoing.
