DEARBORN (WXYZ) — Dearborn police need your help finding the driver who opened fire on a man inside his vehicle, nearly striking him.

The man shot at is speaking only with 7 Action News after he started recording on his phone just before the driver fired several shots.

The video is terrifying. Aboudy Elhadi says the driver just opened fire with no care in the world. Now Dearborn police need your help finding the person who fired those shots

“I didn’t know he was going to shoot, like he’s just trying to scare me off,” Elhadi said.

It was just before 6 p.m. on Sunday. Elhadi says this shooting incident near Warren Avenue and Greenfield was a result of road rage.

“He came in front of me, cut me off and throwing fingers, like I thought this guy was drunk,” he said.

Elhadi says after he pulled up alongside the driver that’s when he saw the gun.

“He didn’t even blink. This guy had it ready and ready to shoot," Elhadi said. "I’m telling you if it wasn’t me it was some else who could have got hurt."

Several bullet holes can be seen on the driver side of the truck. Elhadi says for someone to be so reckless and negligent and just shoot a gun is dangerous, especially when other drivers were nearby.

“He just picked up his gun and shot right in my face,” Elhadi said.

Right now, police are looking for an early 2000s green Honda Accord, four-door sedan with a blue/gray colored passenger side door, and was last seen fleeing southbound on Greenfield and Warren Avenue. Elhadi says he shouldn’t have engaged the driver but hopes whoever fired the shots is found soon.

“Do not engage with them. Do not even talk to them. What I did I know it was wrong, but I insisted I take that video. I wanted to take that video, so this guy should be off the street,” Elhadi said.

Police continue to investigate.
