Some real psychos out there.

This is why I always keep my eyes straight when stopped at an intersection. Never ever make eye contact.

You just never know what will trigger unhinged lunatics out there.

A Phoenix man was arrested this week on suspicion of shooting and killing another man who looked at him while stopped at a red light in March, authorities say.

Nicolas Elliott, 30, was booked into a Maricopa County jail Thursday on suspicion of first-degree murder, aggravated assault, misconduct involving weapons and drug-related charges, according to the Phoenix Police Department.

Police, in a press release, said Elliott shot and killed 26-year-old Alex W. Mixon on March 1 about 3:15 a.m., "for merely looking at him while stopped at a red traffic light."

Phoenix..yes some real psychos out there. Normally, you get these kind of things when it gets really hot, the ones on the edge become unglued. A lady from Home Depot said fights in the parking lot were regular occurrences when temps rose.

I know the area of 32nd and Thunderbird, not a really safe place to be after dark.

I am not surprised. Poor guy was probably squinting due to a glare or something.

I choose to refuse to see confrontational behavior & it drives the husband nuts. He insisted some guy flipped me off & I just told him he was adjusting his sun visor (okay, the sun was shining from the opposite direction; the guy WAS flipping me off). It's just so not worth it.

One time a guy cut me off & he started telling me to hurry & catch up so I could 'pull up alongside that mother ******!'

I drove really slow ... 'Oops, sorry! He's too far ahead!'

Couldn't possibly have anything to do with Phoenix being the fifth largest city in the U.S., huh?

New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston... No, there's never any drug-related gun violence in any of those cities. No, siree!

What does this story have to do with drugs? The suspect, (disturbed violent individual by all accounts) had drugs in his possession but there is no indication that either he or the victim were under the influence, had any sort of history between them or were in the middle of some sort of drug transaction at the time of the incident.

This incident happened on March 1st at around 3 am..it was around 55-60 degrees at the time. Daytime temps had been in the mid 70s the day before. Heat had nothing to do with this dude shooting the other guy.


It looks like this guy is just a ruthless scumbag who thought he could get away with it given the time of night and likely lack of eye witnesses.
