After the brothers got out of the car, the other driver assessed his car and started to get angry, Christian Rooney told police. But the other driver wasn’t yelling or making threats, Christian Rooney said.
He noticed the man had a gun, so the brothers decided to get back in their car and leave, according to the police report. Christian Rooney said that’s when the other driver shot between four and six times as they were on the I-75 North on-ramp, according to the incident report.
Soon after, Tre Rooney realized he had been hit.
"He was shooting to kill," Tre Rooney told Channel 2.
Police have released a sketch of the man who they believe shot the teen.
After the brothers stopped to have a flat tire repaired, Tre Rooney was treated at Grady Memorial Hospital with an injury to his right arm and leg.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
