MILTON, Wash. – Police have identified a 60-year-old man shot and killed by a female motorcycle rider during a road-rage incident.

Washington State Police say Bruce Jones of Roy died Thursday afternoon after being shot one time on southbound Interstate 5 in Milton.

Authorities have not released details of what led to the road rage.

The name of the motorcycle rider hasn’t been released.

Police say she is not being detained, but that doesn’t mean she’s been cleared in the shooting.
