Trial for man accused of road rage

Accused allegedly shot at a truck following a confrontation

A man accused of a road rage shooting will go to trial this summer.

The alleged incident occurred at 5:25 a.m. on July 12, 2016 in the Corral Foods parking lot on 59th Avenue when the driver of a truck attempted to confront the driver of a white Chrysler Intrepid after a traffic dispute.

Police allege the man driving the Intrepid pointed a handgun at the truck and then shot at it as the truck departed. No one was injured, and the suspect Intrepid fled eastbound on 67th Street.

RCMP located the Intrepid and followed it to the area of Range Road 275 west of Red Deer. The driver abandoned the car and fled on foot and escaped.

Mathew Duda, 29, was arrested six months later and is now facing a number of weapons-related charges including discharging a firearm.

His trial is set for July 17 in Red Deer provincial court.
