Elijah Trice, 21, is charged with second-degree assault and armed criminal action.

Police say the shooting happened around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. Trice was driving an SUV on eastbound 370 near I-270 when he cut off a woman in an SUV who then had to suddenly brake to avoid a collision, police said.

Both cars then ended up side-by-side before Trice allegedly shot the woman. She later reported the shooting to police from a hospital.

Authorities later arrested Trice and recovered a gun. He is being held in the St. Louis County Jail on a $75,000 cash-only bond.
