Virginia: Man admits road rage shooting.




ROANOKE, Va. – A Roanoke man was sentenced to 18 months in prison for a fatal road rage incident in June 2022.

According to Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Andrew Stephens, 29-year-old Keandra Smith admitted to shooting 40-year-old Grover Edwards III on Williamson Road after a physical altercation. Smith pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter.

Smith testified in court that he fired his weapon after Edwards broke a car window near his four-year-old son, who was in the backseat at the time. Stephens commented, “It was 100% road rage, and it was stupid. No reason at all for these parties to decide to have a fist fight at 11:30 a.m. on Williamson Road, broad daylight.”

Stephens also noted that the shorter sentence was likely due to the fact that both men were involved in the altercation and Smith showed remorse in court by apologizing to Edwards’ family.
