CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee(WDEF) - Police say road rage may have sparked a shooting that left one person dead.

It happened Monday morning at the intersection of Moore Road and North Terrace.

Investigators said Norman Gallman, 39, was in a Honda Civic when he was allegedly shot and killed by Richard Manning, 62.

Police believe road rage may have led to the shooting but it's still unclear as to how it all went down.

"I'm not sure if this is a normal situation or who got out of the car or what actually happened. Like I said, that's just what witnesses are telling us," said Chattanooga Police Sgt. Wayne Jefferson.

Within minutes of securing the crime scene at the intersection, officers frantically drove to Manning's home in the 700 block of Lovell in East Ridge.

"The witnesses stated it was a suspect vehicle that drove to this location and we followed up on a lead and we had a partial tag," Jefferson said.

The scene grew even more intense as officers took up tactical positions on the entire block but before long, they were able to safely take Manning into custody.

Manning will now face charges that include criminal homicide and aggravated assault.
