Investigators: Fatal gas station stabbing may have been road rage

(KMOV) -- A man is dead after being stabbed in the neck at a St. Louis gas station. Investigators now say the incident may have been a case of road rage.

It happened on Sunday afternoon at the Phillips 66 gas station at 8815 North Broadway in north St. Louis.

Police say that a man and his wife were driving when someone in another vehicle began to honk their horn. The couple stopped at the gas station and the woman went into the store. A few minutes later, the man came into the store bleeding from the neck. The man died later at a local hospital.

Police believe the person that was honking followed them to the gas station and stabbed the man and drove off. Police say the victim and suspect likely knew each other.

Police are not releasing a description of the suspect but they say they have some strong leads.

The victim's name has not yet been released.
