ST. LOUIS – A 60-year-old Jennings man is accused of opening fire on another vehicle on Interstate 70 in an apparent road rage attack.

According to the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department’s probable cause statement, the shooting occurred on eastbound I-70 near Goodfellow Boulevard.

Police claim Earnest E. Morant opened fire on a woman on the interstate. The victim’s vehicle had apparent ballistic damage and police obtained surveillance video of the shooter’s vehicle as described by the victim: a black Ford Escape. Police determined Morant was one of the registered owners of the vehicle.

St. Louis County SWAT went to Morant’s residence with a search warrant on May 9. Police claim they found several firearms in Morant’s home, which he’s not allowed to have due to prior felony convictions.

Police claim Morant admitted being involved in other shootings while driving, noting that he has anger problems and had previously been investigated for another road rage shooting.

The St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office charged Morant with first-degree assault, armed criminal action, discharge of a firearm at or from a motor vehicle toward a person or another motor vehicle, and unlawful possession of a firearm. Morant was originally jailed without bond but released on May 13 with sponsored recognizance. He’s due in court on May 20 for a detention hearing.
