A man is dead after he was shot during an alleged road rage incident before crashing his vehicle into a home in DeKalb County late Wednesday night.

The incident happened just before midnight on the 1400 block of Columbia Drive in Decatur.

Police say the victim, later identified as 22 year-old Cedric Williams, was attempting to turn south onto Columbia Drive from Memorial Drive when he cut off another vehicle. That vehicle then pulled aside Williams's car and shots were fired.

After Williams was shot, he crashed his vehicle into the garage of a home in the area. No one inside the home was injured.

Williams had two female passengers in the car and neither sustained any injuries.

Police do not have any suspects in custody.

Williams leaves behind a 22 month-old son.
