With little evidence to work with, Metro is seeking the public's help in finding two suspects in an apparent "road rage" killing that occurred early Saturday in the northwest part of the valley.

The homicide is the 67th of the year in Metro's jurisdiction Metro has made 34 arrests in the 67 cases.
Shortly after 12:30 a.m. Saturday, patrol officers were dispatched to the area of Racel Street and Forrest Fire in the northwest part of the valley to investigate a report of a male down in a street. Medical personnel already on scene had located an adult male deceased in the roadway from apparent stab wounds.
The preliminary investigation initiated by Metro's homicide section indicated the victim had been driving eastbound on Racel Street when he encountered another vehicle stopped in the travel lanes.
