    A local woman took road-rage to a new level when she slashed the face of an unsuspecting motorist and then chased her all the way to the police station -- all with her four-year-old daughter in the car.

    The Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a deadly shooting Saturday morning.

    The shooting happened at a home in the 100 block of Early Street.

    Investigators said the problem began with a heated argument between Jason Jett and Lawrence Dale Toler, II. The fight allegedly escalated and the two men struggled over a gun. The firearm discharged twice, hitting Jett and another person.

    Jett was taken to Mary Washington Hospital and pronounced dead. The second victim was treated for a superficial wound and released.

    Toler turned himself into police custody and was charged with second-degree murder.

    The investigation is still continuing.
