OAKLAND — Images from the victim’s on-board vehicle camera have led to attempted murder and other charges being filed against a man in an Oct. 6 road rage shooting on Interstate 580, according to court documents and authorities.
The intended target, a 54-year-old man, was not injured even though the bullet fired at him went through the driver’s seat headrest, authorities said.
Charged Wednesday with the attempted murder count, shooting at an occupied vehicle and assault with a firearm was Troy Marbray, 22, of Oakland, who was arrested Monday. He is scheduled to enter a plea Oct. 30 and is being held without bail at Santa Rita Jail.
The shooting happened at about around 2 p.m. Oct. 6 in the westbound lanes of I-580 near the San Leandro border. The California Highway Patrol said in court documents there was a road rage incident that occurred between the drivers of two vehicles but did not provide more details.
According to the documents, Marbray then pulled alongside the victim’s Tesla vehicle and fired a shot at him. The shot went through the the vehicle’s right rear window before going through the driver’s seat headrest and lodging in another part of the car. The slug was later recovered.
The victim drove to the Oakland Police Department where the CHP took over the case. As part of the investigation the CHP was able to review video captured on the Tesla’s on-board camera.
They showed the California license plate on the Kia the suspect was driving and the “face of the shooter”, later identified as Marbray, the documents say, and he was eventually arrested and charged.
