A young pastor out of Florida was shot in the head in a senseless tragedy that has left the community stunned. Steven Simon is a 22-year old preacher out of West Palm Beach. He was shot in the head last week during a road rage incident in Interstate 95.
The young pastor was with his girlfriend at the time, a 23-year old woman who called police right after the shooting.
“We’re driving, and [inaudible] he cut us off,” she said. ”Then, we kept driving, and he drove by us, then he cut us off again, and then he shot at us.”
The young lady was able to give the police a description of the car. Police are now looking for a 1999/2000 beige or Champagne-colored car with a white male driver in his 50s or 60s. The man has white hair and they believe that he was driving a Saturn.
“Unfortunately, road rage is becoming a part of our culture. People get upset where there was a slow down. It’s just absolutely ludicrous to let a situation like this escalate,” said Martin County Sheriff William Snyder.
Simon was flown to the hospital and is fighting to live after this horrible incident. He is a pastor at the Straight Way to Heaven church in West Palm Beach.
“We desperately need the public’s help,” Sheriff Snyder said. he added,”There’s someone out there who can help us.”
