A 21-year-old Beaufort County employee was shot in killed in an alleged road rage shooting Tuesday night.

Around 9:00pm, Rhashard Spikes was driving his Dodge Dart with two passengers in the Southwood Park area.  Spikes and his passengers told investigators that they nearly avoided an accident with a silver colored vehicle with dark tinted windows.

Deputies are looking for the driver and passengers of the silver car.  Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to call Investigator Cornillus La Van at 843-255-3313.
