Jeremy Webster, the man accused of shooting four people in a suspected road rage incident in Westminster, Colorado, faces 11 felony counts including first-degree murder, along with nine sentence enhancers.

On June 14, Webster followed the victim’s car for several blocks into a parking lot where he exited his car and walk to reach the family. Then, he began to argue with the mother, police say, and shot her with his handgun, as 9News reported.

The suspect then turned the handgun on the woman's children. He shot her 13-year-old and 8-year-old sons, police say, while the woman's 12-year-old son managed to run away without getting hit.

Webster shot the boys multiple times at point-blank range and briefly returned to his car, according to The Denver Channel, only to come back and shoot the 13-year-old as he lay on the ground.

But Webster didn’t stop there; he then fired at a man in a pickup truck after making eye contact with him. Bullets hit the man in both of his arms but his 9-year-old daughter, who was also in the truck, was not injured.

The 13-year-old boy later died of his injuries, and his mother and brother were rushed to a hospital with "life-threatening injuries."

The suspect then drove out of the parking lot but the 12-year-old boy who escaped untouched told police what happened and that his mom took a photograph of the assailant's license plate.

Webster fled the scene, but thanks to the picture of his license plate, he was taken into custody about three hours after the shooting when the Colorado State Patrol intercepted his vehicle on Interstate 25 near Castle Rock.

According to a Huffington report, the suspect stated that he has mental health issues and just started a newly prescribed medication on the day of the shooting. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa
