A woman who police say shot a man during a road rage incident in the parking lot of a DeKalb County Target location has posted bail and is out of jail.

The shooting happened around 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday in the parking lot of the Target on Lavista Road near the Northlake Mall in Tucker.

According to an incident report, surveillance video shows what led up to the confrontation. Police report the two cars were trying to get around a truck near the loading docks. Neither car moved and the man got out of his car and started pouring water on the other car and on the other driver when she got out of her car. The report states the woman, later identified as 40-year-old Tara Moody, got a gun from her car and chased the man, shooting him.

The shooting victim is identified as 47-year-old Robert Herwing of Decatur. He went inside the Target where he collapsed. 

Police said Moody drove off in a black Honda Accord.

"Sometimes tempers flare up, it doesn’t matter where you are, and we always advise keep your temper. It's not worth a parking space, it’s not worth a life," said Shiera Campbell, spokesperson for the the DeKalb County Police Department.

Herwing remains hospitalized in stable condition.

Moody was arrested and jailed before posting bail. She's expected in court Tuesday morning.
