A Long Island man who was shot to death while driving home may have been a victim of a road-rage incident.
During a press conference on Thursday, Jan. 16, Nassau County Police Det. Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick said road rage could play into the murder of Justin Gottlieb, 27, of Planview.
The shooting took place around 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 14, after Gottlieb left his place of employment in Jericho around 5 p.m., and drove to his Margaret Drive East home where he was shot multiple times as he got out of his 2002 red Ford Explorer, Fitzpatrick said.
Fitzpatrick said investigators are looking for a white, four-door sedan that had some type of interaction with Gottlieb on the roadway.
The detective said the department is asking anyone who may have seen the red Explorer and the white sedan to please call the department.
"Someone had to see something," he said.
Police are asking the public to call the homicide squad or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-8477.
Up to a $5,000 reward is being offered. All callers can remain anonymous.
