Drivers Shoot Each Other Dead in Road Rage Spat

A pair of drivers shot each other to death in a Michigan parking lot last night, in what appears to have been a fit of road rage. James Pullum, 43, and Robert Taylor, 56, got out of their cars and argued in a car-wash parking lot in Iona, Mich., an argument that eventually ended in seven to eight shots being fired, witnesses tell Wood TV.

One man ran to try to help, kicking the guns out of the way and attempting CPR, but it was no use. Town officials say both men had concealed carry permits. "I think it's crazy that a small town has to have two people die," says one witness. "I feel sorry for the families and everyone acquainted with them." (More road rage stories.)
