INDIANA, Pa. (AP) — State police have been searching for a man charged with shooting an Indiana University of Pennsylvania student in the leg in a possible road rage incident.


Trooper John Matchik says police believe the suspect, 29-year-old Eagan Minich, of Indiana somehow became angry when the victim jumped out of the passenger seat of a vehicle in front of Minich’s vehicle, while both were stopped at a red light about 2 a.m. Thursday.


Police say the shooting victim, 20-year-old student Hayden Warmke, did that only so he could go around the vehicle he was riding in and secure a rear hatch that wasn’t closed properly.


But police say Minich apparently was upset or misinterpreted Warmke’s actions and followed the vehicle Warmke was in to an off-campus parking lot. That’s where Warmke was shot in a confrontation.
