FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina police department says a motorcyclist was shot and killed in what’s being described as a road rage incident.

A news release from the Fayetteville Police Department says officers sent to a location in the center of the city at around 12:31 p.m. Monday found that an unidentified man riding a motorcycle had been shot.

A preliminary investigation showed that the driver of a truck was involved in an apparent argument with the motorcyclist before the man was shot.

Police say the victim was taken to a local hospital, where he died from his wounds.

Police are trying to notify relatives before releasing his identity.
