TUCKER, Ga. - A DeKalb County grand jury has indicted a woman on aggravated assault and weapons charges after a road rage incident at a Target parking lot.
Tara Moody opened fire on a man outside a Target store on LaVista Road near Interstate 285 back in July 2017.
The incident happened around 9:30 a.m. when, according to the police report, Moody and another driver, identified as Robert Herwing, both tried to get around a parked truck at the same time in the parking lot. Neither budged and that is when the report states Herwing got out and poured water on Moody’s Honda and then on her.
The report stated Moody then took a handgun from her car and shot Herwing in the chest. Herwing reportedly was able to walk to the store where he collapsed. Officers at the scene said Herwing was conscious and talking when medics arrived. He was transported to Atlanta Medical Center.
The store’s surveillance video played a pivotal role in identifying Moody, according to police. After the altercation, the report states Moody is shown in surveillance leaving the parking lot driving toward Lawrenceville Highway.
No word on Moody’s next court date.
