Anh Kieu, 39, of Quincy, was arrested on Saturday in connection with a road rage incident and three-car crash in Stoughton on Wednesday night, officials say.
The incident began with an argument at the 7-Eleven convenience store on Washington Street in Canton, police said.
“There was an argument that took place in a convenience store in Canton. There was a road rage incident that followed the argument. This resulted in a firearm discharging from one vehicle to another – and resulting in a motor vehicle accident,” Stoughton Deputy Chief Brian Holmes said at a press conference on Thursday. .
Kieu faces four charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, careless operation of a motor vehicle and marked lane violations, according to Boston 25 News.
Police say Kieu pointed a gun at a witness around 9 p.m. Wednesday. The victim quickly got back into his friend’s black Nissan Altima after the wrecker’s altercation and left the scene alongside the three others in the car, according to Boston 25 News.
According to the police, Kieu followed in a white Cadillac and the victim became afraid of being chased and started to accelerate. Kieu then allegedly swerved into the opposite lane of traffic and pointed a gun at people in the car at the intersection of Pearl and Central streets in Stoughton, according to Boston 25.
The driver of the Altima then allegedly fired seven shots at Kieu, one of which hit him, according to police. The two cars crashed following another chase, hitting another vehicle in the process, officials said.
Five people were taken to area hospitals with injuries, including Kieu, and all were released, according to Boston 25 News.
Kieu is expected to appear in Stoughton District Court on Tuesday.
