SPRINGFIELD TWP., Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Law enforcement sources confirm with Action News that the accused shooter is now in custody following a fatal road rage incident in Delaware County.

Police were called to the scene on State Road (Route 1) near Meetinghouse Lane in Springfield Township around 8:43 a.m. Wednesday.

Fifty-four-year-old King Hua, a township resident, and his wife were traveling in a white Toyota southbound on State Road when the female driver of a vehicle passed them on the shoulder.

The vehicle then stopped and a male passenger partially got out and fired shots at the victim's Toyota.

The bullets went through the windshield and hit Hua. He was taken to the hospital but died from his injuries.
