A traffic dispute involving two drivers ends with a fatal shooting (CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar reports). YouTube Tips ⓘ

Scott Mattison, age 46, was shot four times after he got out of his light blue work truck and confronted the driver of a white Ford Taurus sedan on Bartlett Road near Oltendorff Road in Streamwood. A video circulated on Twitter and other social media showed that Mattison’s light blue Paragon Mechanical work van –belonging to an HVAC company based in Arlington Heights — was parked in front of a white Ford Taurus sedan in daylight. The Paragon Mechanical work van was stopped in front of the Ford Taurus in a center traffic lane of southbound Bartlett Road — a stretch of road that is a four-lane thoroughfare with no shoulder and no center turning lanes.


Streamwood Resident Charged with 1st Degree Murder After Shooting on Bartlett Rd Streamwood

The video of the fatal shooting was captured from a motorist in a position directly behind the Ford Taurus. The driver’s door of the shooting victim’s Paragon Mechanical work van was still open. The video begins with Mattison, wearing a blue shirt and black pants, positioning his head partially inside the driver’s door window opening. Mattison then raises his right arm and puts it almost entirely inside the driver’s side window opening. Viewers of the video can’t see the driver inside the Ford Taurus, but Mattison removes his arm from the Ford Taurus window opening, and as he is backing away from the Ford Taurus, four gunshots are heard in quick succession. Mattison grabs his abdomen and chest region of his body, spins and falls to the street on the center line of the four-lane roadway.

The video stops immediately after the driver of the Ford Taurus puts the vehicle in reverse, apparently to make room to move around the Paragon Mechanical work van.
