SPRINGFIELD, Pa. (CBS) — Springfield Police have arrested a Darby man in connection to a road rage shooting that left a 54-year-old man dead earlier this week. Saddiq Washington, 22, is being charged with several offenses, including first-degree murder, third-degree murder, and recklessly endangering another person for killing King Hua.
“This is a senseless, brutal act,” Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollesteimer said.READ MORE: Philadelphia Police Searching For Missing Mother, 6-Year-Old Daughter
Washington was brought into custody on Wednesday night.
Stollesteimer said Washington had a permit to carry a concealed weapon and he legally purchased the firearm.
The gunfire broke out on South State Road near Meetinghouse Lane during the Wednesday morning rush.
Police say Hua was shot and killed during a suspected road rage attack, all because he was driving too slowly in rush hour traffic.
Investigators say a man and a woman in a dark-colored SUV pulled up on the shoulder next to Hua’s car. They say the man got out and fired into the victim’s windshield, and then fled.

Washington will be held at Delaware County Prison. He was denied bail, according to a docket sheet.
Washington has a preliminary hearing scheduled for July 14 at 9 a.m.
The attack has certainly set this neighborhood on edge.
“Our neighbors, being out here yesterday, talking about it, everybody was nerve-wracked,” Joe Mirante said
“To kill that guy because he was just driving a little slowly, these criminals just basically deserve anything they get. The worse, the better,” he added.

Memphis Depay, Daley Blind and Denzel Dumfries all found the net to see off the Americans at the Khalifa International Stadium.
Dutch starlet Gakpo – who already has a trio of goals in Qatar after scoring in all three group games – impressed once more despite not adding a fourth.
The 23-year-old PSV striker has been linked with a move away after also having a stunning start to the Eredivisie this season with nine goals and 12 assists in 14 appearances.
Man United and Real Madrid have both been heavily linked with Gakpo, whose contract runs out in June 2026.
And when asked whether Gakpo is ready to play at the level of either of those giant clubs, either in January or next summer, Van Dijk replied: “Is Manchester United and Real Madrid the same level at the moment?
"No disrespect, not at all. I definitely think he has that next step in him. I definitely feel like it could happen, whether that is in the winter or the summer or next year, time will tell.
“He is a great boy who works hard, very talented and definitely there is more in him. we are so pleased he is doing so well for us. Long may it continue.”

But Van Dijk added: “I don’t think we will think about success at this point. We will think about game by game. We know we can be knocked out or sent home every game now.
“The focus will be on recovery and making sure we are ready for either Argentina or Australia. We will see.
“We play so many games so there is no point to look too far ahead.”
Van Dijk has also revealed he has full trust in Liverpool to find the right new owners with FSG open to selling in the near future.
Asked if it is on his mind during the World Cup, he explained: “Definitely I am aware of everything that is happening.
“Whether I am taking it in and doing something with it right now, I don’t think so because the full focus is on the World Cup.
“But hopefully everything will be sorted and clarified when I am back. At this point, I am definitely not thinking about it.Read More on The US SunEVIDENCE MINEFIELD Delphi cop shares accomplice theory & why causes of death were withheldSOCCER PUNCH USA OUT of World Cup after defeat by Netherlands as fans left heartbroken
