Man apologizes after being arrested for road rage shooting

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis man is apologizing for firing shots at another vehicle during a road rage incident Saturday.

According to the affidavit, Frederick Frierson, 29, shot at another driver three times near South Trezevant and Supreme Avenue.

The victim called police around 3:30 p.m. to report that he had been shot at at the intersection.

When MPD arrived, they discovered that one of the three shots hit the victim’s vehicle.

While the officer was taking the report, the victim spotted the suspect driving on Airways heading toward Lamar.

The officer pulled the suspect, later identified as Frierson, over and detained him.

While being detained, Frierson said “the gun is under the driver seat. I am sorry I didn’t mean to do it. Is he okay?”

Frierson gave officers permission to search the vehicle and they found a black Ruger 9mm under the driver seat and marijuana on the driver side rear passenger floorboard.

Frierson is facing charges of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

He’ll make his first court appearance Monday morning.
