Police released video today which captured the car involved in the Center City road rage incident earlier this week.

The video shows a red Mitsubishi Eclipse, estimated to be a model from between 1995 and 1999, which is suspected of following another car from Fourth and Lombard streets Saturday night to Center City around 7:30 p.m. and then shooting out the car’s window, police said. 

The Eclipse driver started hanging out of the window and screaming at the other car, which was driven by a 28-year-old woman and occupied by a 20-year-old woman and a 4-month-old baby,

As the two cars pulled onto Broad Street the Eclipse driver pulled out a gun and fired. A bullet punched through a rear-window, police said.

Police said the Eclipse driver was a possibly Hispanic man between the ages of 20 and 30.

No injuries were reported.

Police said the Eclipse was last seen heading west on Lombard Street.

Police said it will continue to investigate the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the police tip line at 215-686-TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847.
