A La Porte man is in custody for firing gunshots yesterday.

Police say one of the shots hit a 70 year old man who happened to be

driving by at the time.

23-year old Joseph Ukonga was arrested at his home in the 200 block of

I street.....

That's where the rounds were fired.

Police say the incident seems connected to road rage that happened

in the Koomler Park area.

While the gun was being fired.....the elderly man driving by was hit in the

face by one of the stray rounds.

He was transferred to a South Bend hospital.

Police say his injuries did not appear life threatening.

A few other vehicles were also hit.

Police say Ukonga also had possible drugs and drug paraphernalia on his possession.
