PASAGOULA, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi man faces new charges in a road rage death earlier this year.

The Sun Herald reported that 28-year-old Luis Ruiz Soto Jr. of Gautier was arraigned Tuesday on charges of second-degree murder, shooting a motor vehicle and two counts of aggravated assault.

The charges come in the Jan. 25 death of Leland Sumrall, who crashed after being shot several times. He died in a hospital a short time later.

Pascagoula police were called by a driver who said someone was shooting at a vehicle. No other injuries were reported.

Authorities described the shooting as a road rage incident.

Pascagoula police initially arrested Soto on murder and assault charges.

He pleaded not guilty to the new charges Tuesday.

Trial is scheduled Oct. 1.
