ANDERSON — One man is dead following a road-rage shooting early Sunday in Anderson, police said.

The shooting occurred just before 2:45 a.m. at the intersection of Broadway and Webster streets, Anderson Police Department public information officer Caleb McKnight said in a news release.

Police who responded found Raymond Haywire, 46, near the roadway suffering from a gunshot wound. Witnesses told police someone fired a gun out of a small dark-colored sedan before driving away northbound on Webster Street.

Medics transported Haywire to an Anderson hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Police said the vehicle witnesses described was seen in the neighborhood around Webster Street "minutes before the shooting occurred."

McKnight said an 18-year-old man was arrested on a murder charge Monday morning. The Madison County Prosecutor's Office will determine formal charges.

WRTV does not identify suspects in crimes until they are officially charged by prosecutors.

Anyone with information about the shooting should contact Anderson Police Department Detective Cliff Cole at 765-648-6654.
