WTVG (ABC Toledo) reported recently that an Ohio concealed handgun license (CHL) -holder was forced to use his gun to defend himself and his two children during a road rage incident.

From the article:

Police responded to a shots-fired call in the 5200 block of Monroe St. around 8:15 p.m. Wednesday. Officers located a scene there, and other officers were sent to a location just across the state line in Michigan, where one of the involved vehicles was parked.

Witnesses told police they saw a Black male exit a white Chevy Malibu or Impala and begin firing at a dark-colored sedan on Monroe. Two other witnesses stated they saw the driver of the dark-colored sedan begin firing back.

According to police, the owner of the dark-colored sedan, Justin Langlois, 25, reported that he was involved in a road rage incident with another unknown individual who cut off Langlois in his car and began firing a gun. Langlois, who had his two young children, aged 4 and 2, in the car with him, drew his firearm, for which he is licensed to carry, and began returning fire.

The driver of the white sedan is still at large.
