Road rage leads to shooting incident in Chesterland

No injuries have been reported. Police are searching for suspects.

CHESTERLAND, Ohio — Police in Chesterland are searching for the suspects involved in a road rage incident that included shots being fired on Thursday afternoon. 

Chester Township Police Chief Craig Young tells 3News that officers were dispatched to Mayfield Road between County Line and Caves Rd. at about 12:15 p.m. for reports of a road rage incident that may have involved gunfire.

Young believes that the incident began on I-271 in Cuyahoga County, then moved onto Mayfield Road into Chesterland. Investigators did confirm that shots were fired from at least one of the vehicles involved. 

No injuries were reported from the incident and no weapons were recovered from the scene. The investigation is ongoing.

"Road rage is always a concern for us," Young added. "This is not a new occurrence by any means. You just hope that incidents don't evolve into what this one did. I always urge people, no matter what happens out on the roadway, keep your calm and just let it roll off your shoulders because you don't want to think about what those unintended consequences could be once guns start being involved." 

Young says police are hoping that surveillance video may be available from the incident. If you have any information, please contact the Chester Township Police Department.
