Doctor charged for murder after shooting at truck driver in road rage

A doctor charged with fatally shooting a Vermont truck driver through his window allegedly blamed the road rage incident on him having a “s–t day.”

Jozsef Piri, 49, was arrested in Naples, Florida, last week over the 2019 shooting death of 44-year-old Roberto Fonseca-Rivera.

Piri is awaiting extradition to Vermont, where he will face a second-degree murder charge.

Fonseca-Rivera’s body was found slumped over in the produce truck he was driving on Route 103 in Rockingham after being shot in the head and neck on Nov. 1, 2019, police said.

The victim had been on the phone to a friend when he started complaining about a car in front of his vehicle driving erratically, according to court documents obtained this week by the Hartford Courant.

The friend told cops he heard Fonseca-Rivera take a “deep inhale” and then a loud noise that sounded like he’d dropped his cellphone on the floor.

Police said they’d determined over the course of their two-year investigation that Piri was driving in front of Fonseca-Rivera in the moments before the shooting.
