Flaggert said the shooting stemed from a road rage incident involving a red pickup truck and a black hearse adorned with a Christmas wreath, which McConville was reportedly driving when he opened fire on the pickup truck driver.

"When officers arrived, they found a red pickup parked in the middle of the intersection with a male victim lying next to the pickup that had one single gunshot wound," Flaggert said.

The shooting took place at Northwest 10th and Meridian Avenue around 2:30 p.m. Friday, according to police.
