A Quincy man who was shot during a road rage incident in Stoughton has been arrested, Stoughton police said.
Police said Anh Kieu, 39, of Quincy, was arrested shortly before 4 p.m. Saturday at his home and charged with four counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, negligent driving and marked-lanes violations, WCVB reported.
Kieu entered a plea of not guilty at his arraignment before Judge Brian Walsh in Stoughton District Court on Tuesday. He was ordered held on $2,500 cash bail and is due to return on June 20.
Commonwealth was represented by ADA Mark Assad.
As with all defendants, Mr. Kieu enjoys the Constitutional presumption of innocence.,
Defense attorney was Chris Perruzi
An argument between Kieu and another man at the 7-Eleven on Washington Street in Canton at about 9 p.m. Wednesday led to the shooting and a crash at the intersection of Plain and West streets in Stoughton about 15 minutes later, police said.
Stoughton police said the man said Kieu pointed a gun at him inside the 7-Eleven. The man ran to his friend's car, a black Nissan Altima, and told the other three occupants of the car what happened.
The Nissan left the parking lot and Kieu, who was driving a white Cadillac, followed that car, police said. The Nissan driver told police he drove at a high rate of speed because he feared he and his friends were being chased by Kieu.
Police said the Nissan made it to the intersection of Pearl and Central streets in Stoughton. Kieu's car crossed the double-yellow line into the opposite lane of traffic and pulled up to the Altima, witnesses told police. Kieu pointed a handgun at the people in the Nissan, witnesses said.
The Nissan driver, who police said has a valid license to carry a gun and a properly registered firearm, yelled for his friends to get down. Police said the Nissan driver fired seven rounds into the Cadillac because he was "fearing for his life," and that one of the bullets struck Kieu.
Police said the Nissan driver drove away and Kieu continued to follow it in his Cadillac. The Nissan driver told police he remained fearful of Kieu and continued to speed, which led to the crash at Plain and West streets.
Five people, including Kieu, were taken to hospitals and later released.
Stoughton police said a black pellet gun, an SNR 357 revolver, was seized from the Cadillac that Kieu was driving.
After his arrest, Kieu was taken to Stoughton police headquarters and was held on $20,000 cash bail.
Stoughton police said they do not plan to file charges against the Nissan driver at this time.
