Man Arrested in Deadly Road Rage Shooting in Pennsylvania

A man who fatally shot a driver in Springfield Township for “driving too slowly” was arrested on Thursday.

King Hua, 54, was killed while he stopped at a red light at about 8:40 AM on State Road in Springfield Township.

On Friday morning, Delaware County District Attorney Jack Sollsteimer announced in a press conference that Saddiq Washington, 22, had been arrested and charged with first-degree murder and other related charges.

Springfield Township investigators believe Washington fired on the car because Hua was “not driving fast enough”.

Hua and his wife were driving south when another vehicle with Washington and an unnamed woman inside passed their car.

Joseph Daly, the Springfield Township Police Chief, said that a dark sport utility vehicle pulled ahead of Hua’s car where a male passenger got out, fired two shots through Hua’s windshield, and fled the scene.

Springfield Township police responded to the scene between Buttonwood Drive and Meetinghouse Lane before 9 AM on Wednesday for reports of a car crash and shooting. 

“The suspect’s vehicle pulls onto the shoulder of the road, got ahead of the victim’s vehicle, got out of the vehicle, fired two shots at the vehicle which permeated the window, killing the operator,” Daly said.

Springfield authorities said Hua was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died.
