A Porter, Indiana man is in custody after he allegedly shot at a semi-truck in a road rage incident last week in Berrien County.

Lincoln Township police were called to eastbound I-94 at the 24 mile marker around 7:45 a.m. Friday. That’s about a mile east of the Stevensville exit. A semi driver had been shot by an angry man on a motorcycle, according the Lincoln Township Police Department.

The semi driver was struck by a bullet, but it’s unknown how badly he was hurt. A bullet also caused damage to the semi. Police found a bullet hole in the truck’s radiator.

The driver of the semi gave police a detailed description of the motorcycle before it sped off. Witnesses say the rider showed his pistol in a separate incident between Stevensville and Watervliet. No shots were fired in that incident, according to police.

Police caught up to the motorcycle and it’s rider about 14 miles down the highway before it got to the Coloma exit. He was identified Monday as 34-year-old Trenton Norris. After Norris was pulled over, police say they recovered a loaded .40 caliber pistol. Norris reportedly admitted that he was upset the truck driver cut him off in the construction zone. However, he also says that he didn’t actually intend to hurt the driver.

The Berrien County Prosecutor’s Office has charged Norris with four felony counts. They are assault to do great bodily harm less than murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, discharge of a firearm from a motor vehicle, and carrying a concealed weapon. He remains in Berrien County Jail.
