A suspected case of road rage turned deadly on Sunday.

Police identified the victim as Leonard Joyner III, 58.

Police say Joyner was involved in a crash over the weekend at 51st and Swope Parkway when the driver of the other car got out and opened fire.

Joyner's shooting shocked his best friend Gary Hardin.

Hardin and Joyner had been friends for 54 years when the two of them were just little boys. He says the two got together frequently... with Leonard coming over and watching CNN while talking about world events with his best friend.

He says it is unimaginable this is how his life would end just down the street from his home.

"It's ridiculous these days they don't think," Hardin said. "They just react."

There is no suspect information at this time.
