A 32-year-old Federal Way man driving to the hospital to see his wife and newborn son was fatally shot Monday night during a road rage incident, police said.
Officers found the father of two inside his vehicle in the 32800 block of Hoyt Road SW about 10:30 p.m. after neighbors called 911 to report hearing gunshots.
The man, whose family identified him as Dennis Sloboda, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Detectives believe Sloboda “was involved in some type of road rage incident that began in Northeast Tacoma while the victim drove into Federal Way,” police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock said. “The exact circumstances surrounding the shooting are still under investigation.”
