September 3, 2021
A 33-year-old Chicago man has been arrested in the fatal road rage shooting in July on Hwy. 169 in Plymouth, authorities said Thursday.
The suspect was jailed in Decatur, Ill., on suspicion of second-degree murder in the death of Jay Boughton, 56, who was shot July 6 while driving south on the highway. Although authorities identified him during a news conference, the Star Tribune generally does not identify suspects before they are charged.
Plymouth Police Chief Erik Fadden said the man was arrested Aug. 24 and jailed in the central Illinois city of Decatur, where he remains until he can be extradited to Hennepin County.
