The Cook County Sheriff's Office released a sketch Tuesday night of the man believed to have shot a 58-year-old motorist during an alleged road rage incident Monday in unincorporated Lemont.
Authorities said the man depicted in the sketch shot another driver in the stomach around 10:30 a.m. Monday after being cut off on 107th Street near 104th Avenue.
The victim told police he was heading east on 107th Street in a black Buick LaCrosse when he accidentally cut off a gray or silver pickup truck. The victim pulled over to apologize, and the drivers exchanged words, police said.
