Police: Men fatally shoot each other in road rage incident
IONIA, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Two men are dead after what police are calling a road rage incident in Ionia.
Police tell us they are still trying to piece together just what happened, but what they do know is two drivers are dead and it appears they shot each other after some kind of fight out on the road.
The men have been identified as James Pullum, 43, and Robert Taylor, 56, both of Ionia.
It happened at about 7:00 Wednesday night. Police say both cars pulled into the Wonder Wand Auto Wash in Ionia after police say they had some type of an altercation while driving.
The pair continued fighting in the parking lot and shots were fired.
The men were both taken to the hospital where they were pronounced dead.
Police say they shot and killed each other.
