Hammond Police say they're investigating an apparent road rage incident that led to the death of an East Chicago man. Police Chief Brian Miller says officers responded to the one-thousand block of Indianapolis Boulevard in far north Hammond at 8-o'clock last night. Police say the victiim, driving a car, and another individual driving a van were going northbound on Indianapolis Boulevard, when at one point the victim may have thrown a fast-food cup of water or soda at the suspect's van, and the suspect allegedly fired one shot, striking the victim in the neck. Chief Miller says the incident between the two vehicles apparently began before the cup was thrown, "sort of going at it down the Boulevard, because the gold van reportedly cut off the blue LeSabre". The Lake County Coroners office says 23-year-old Montrell Moss was pronounced dead at an area hospital last night. Chief Miller says the 61-year-old male suspect was being held on a preliminary charge of murder, but Miller says that charge could change. The case is expected to be presented to the Lake County Prosecutors office for formal review and charging Saturday.
