— Garner police are looking for a man who shot another motorist and fled from the scene of a wreck early Sunday.

Around 1 a.m., a red, late-model sedan rear-ended a 2001 Toyota car leaving a shopping center on Jones Sausage Road, between East Garner Road and U.S. Highway 70. A confrontation occurred, during which the sedan driver asked the man and woman in the Toyota not to call police.

When the two refused, police said, the sedan driver shot the Toyota passenger, Marcario Nunez Bustos, four times and fled the scene.

    If someone ran into my car that time of night and I was alone I sure would not want to get out of my car and talk to the other driver. I would dial 911 right away and stay in my car with the door locked. Unfortunately it's just risky to do anything else.

    "during which the sedan driver asked the man and woman in the Toyota to call police"
    According to other coverage of this "got out of the car and approached the other driver, the suspect driver asked him not to call the police. Bustos refused. The suspect shot him four times and fled the scene, according to a press release from the Garner police department."

    Which make much more sense...Seems like WRAL has their facts confused...sad.
