The suspect in the deadly road rage shooting of a teenager in Milwaukee admitted to police he fired his weapon into the car the teen and another person were in, with the intention of scaring them.

A criminal complaint laid out the events leading up to the deadly shooting of Fabian Guzman, 16, who died from his injuries in the shooting on Sept. 19.

Police said Guzman was involved in a crash with another car, when the people in both vehicles got into an argument and shots were fired, striking and killing Guzman.

According to the criminal complaint, the car Guzman and a friend were in was traveling on N. 6th toward Galena when another car, driven by suspect Davante Doss, 28, passed them. One of the cars sideswiped the other, causing a mirror to fly off one of them.

Security video from a bus driving by caught the collision and the interaction leading up to the shooting.

The friend drove away from the scene and Guzman died at an area hospital from his injuries.

Doss was arrested at an area hotel. A firearm found in his vehicle was consistent with the weapon that fired casings found at the scene, the complaint said.

In a statement to police, Doss said after his vehicle was sideswiped, he pulled over to yell at the driver. He said he saw the other person make a hand motion showing an object and believed the driver was going to get out of the vehicle. Doss said he fired into the other vehicle "just to scare them."

According to the complaint, Doss had previous offenses that would prohibit him from possessing a firearm.

Doss faces first-degree reckless homicide and possession of a firearm by a felon charges.
