ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - A 19-year-old was charged Tuesday after a road rage incident led to shots fired in Hazelwood.
Statements show on May 19, the victim and his 1-year-old daughter were traveling north on Howdershell Rd. near Dunn Rd. when a Dodge Charger drove past them on the left side. He saw the front seat passenger allegedly holding her middle finger out the window and heard several gunshots that supposedly shattered his back window.

Porter is being held on a $250,000 bond.
