Albany -- A man is left beaten, bruised, and shot at by another man in a frightening case of road rage. And the man with the gun is still possibly driving on the streets.

Albany Police responded to the incident in the 2600 block of Dawson Road Saturday afternoon around 3:30.

Police reports say 48-year-old Michael Klein was leaving work in his Oldsmobile Cutlass when he pulled out in front of a red pickup truck that was speeding down Highway 82. That truck was driven by an unknown man in his 50s.

Reports say Klein and the man both pulled over at the 2600 block of Old Dawson and then Klein approached the man in his truck. The man pulled a gun on Klein, struck him in the face, And shot at him, but missed.

The man then took off in what witnesses say was a red Dodge Dakota Truck with a green 4-wheeler in the back. There are charges pending on that driver.

Michael Klein was taken to Dougherty County Jail and is charged with two counts of aggressive driving, DUI, and having an open container in his car.
