(KMOV) – A man says he had a gun pointed at him while he was driving eastbound on Interstate 270.

“I’m scared, I’m petrified because I have no idea what he wants to do or what he is thinking about doing,” the victim said.

The victim is referring to the driver of a Ford Expedition who pulled up next to him as they were traveling on Interstate 270 and motioned for the victim to pull over. When the victim didn’t comply, the suspect pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the victim. The victim believes the driver was trying to steal his 2013 Chevy Corvette.

Both drivers exited the highway at Bellfontaine Road. After exiting, the victim tried to chase his attacker down, but says the suspect began driving against traffic to get away.

“I was scared, but I was really upset at first,” the victim said. “All I could think about was trying to get my hands on the guy. I was really mad.”

No injuries were reported and no shots were fired.

The investigation is ongoing.
