A North Division Street man has been accused of a May 26 shooting death that authorities believe was sparked by road rage.
Cory L. Epps, 26, was charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon Wednesday after witnesses to the shooting of Tamika Means, 26, of Cheektowaga, identified him in a lineup at Police Headquarters, police said.
Epps was arrested immediately after the lineup, Homicide Chief Joseph Riga said. He will be arraigned today.
Riga declined to comment on what may have motivated the slaying of Ms. Means, 26, at 4:15 a.m. May 26 near the intersection of East Delevan Avenue and Chelsea Place. But shortly after the shooting, Detective Sgt. Anthony Costantino said investigators were looking into the possibility that road rage provoked the shooting.
Ms. Means of Cheektowaga was in or near her car when she was shot.
