A man has been killed in a road rage incident after exiting I-75.

Kentucky State Police said troopers responded Saturday night at approximately 7:05 to the shooting in Carroll County. The preliminary investigation shows two vehicles exited I-71 at exit 43 in Carroll County.

“One of the drivers involved in the incident was speaking with dispatch at that time. The caller advised that the other driver was displaying a firearm,” state police said.
