An arrest has been made after an apparent Phoenix-area road rage shooting earlier this month.

The incident occurred near Interstate 10 and Wild Horse Pass on Jan. 4.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officials said a man was found at a gas station and had been shot in the face. The victim was taken to a hospital in critical but stable condition.

The victim gave troopers a description of the shooter and said the shooting happened after he was cut off by another driver. The victim said the driver then pointed at him like a finger gun and when the vehicles started to separate, he felt the shot and pulled over, documents show.

The victims vehicle had a dash camera that captured the license plate number of the suspect vehicle. Officials traced the license plate to the owner and located the suspect, 39-year-old Salvatore Patrick Kupreisis, at the Lone Butte Casino about a week later.

Investigators learned Kupreisis had traded in his vehicle for another vehicle at a local dealership, which is believed to be an attempt to avoid arrest.

Kupreisis was booked into jail on numerous charges including attempted murder, aggravated assault, drive-by shooting, disorderly conduct, and more.
