LA driver asks if anyone wants to die while pointing gun, opening fire during rush hour: TMZ

It was a chaotic scene in Los Angeles during rush hour late Tuesday afternoon when a woman who was waiting to merge onto a busy intersection lost her patience, pointed a gun through her vehicle's window, threatened to kill people, and even opened fire, TMZ reported.

The incident occurred at 5:30 p.m. at the busy intersection of Fairfax Avenue and Olympia Boulevard. 

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department received multiple radio calls regarding a woman firing a gun in the air.

The impatient driver was seen on video, obtained by TMZ,  at a stop sign where she starts yelling at someone off-camera. Moments later, she was seen loading a gun and proceeded to yell "Anybody want to die now? Anybody?"

The video then shows the woman pointing the gun, which appeared to be a revolver, through the sunroof of the white vehicle. 

Sarah Kurtz, who lives in the area, said her neighbor shot the video of the tense incident and kept the footage rolling after Greenwade allegedly opened fire.

"I was in my kitchen," Kurtz said. "Just heard 'pop-pop-pop-pop!'"

Another neighbor recalls says the violent incident happened at a place where kids are often seen walking by.

"I do see people with their kids around here," said Suzanne Nichols. "People with their strollers."

LASD deputies eventually caught up with the suspect and she was arrested for felony negligent discharge of a firearm. The department said a firearm was recovered at the scene. 

The suspect was identified by the sheriff's office as 34-year-old Ashley Tamika Greenwade. 

Greenwade also allegedly told authorities she was Dr. Dre’s daughter, which officials said was unsubstantiated.

Her bail was set at $35,000. 

Miraculously, no one was hurt in the incident.
