The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office is investigating a homicide in Lake Stevens that started with road rage and ended in a separate person getting shot to death after he tried to steal one of the road-ragers cars.

According to deputies, there was a road rage incident between a 23-year-old man and a woman on 84th Street NE around 4:25 p.m. The pair were both driving eastbound, and the woman was driving in front of the man. 

The man stopped his car and got out to confront the woman.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
