Shuttle Driver Who Shot Man on Interstate Won't be Charged

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- The hospital shuttle driver who shot a man who threatened him with pepper spray during a dispute on a Delaware interstate won't be charged.           

State justice department spokeswoman Julia Lawes says the Saint Francis Life Paratransit bus driver was firing in self-defense in accordance with Delaware law.           

The bus driver told state police in July that an SUV driver pulled alongside him and pointed at him with a cellphone, and then both drivers pulled over on Interstate 95. He said he shot the SUV driver in the chest in self-defense and then called 911 and assisted with first aid.           

The 53-year-old SUV driver survived the shooting.           

Hospital spokeswoman Samantha Raftovich says the 28-year-old shuttle driver was fired as company policy forbids employees from carrying firearms.
