Like so many road rage incidents, the one between two male drivers in Boca Raton on the afternoon of Sept. 7, 2013 involved one guy cutting off the other followed by horn honking and a raised middle finger.But this one didn’t just end with an obscene gesture and hot-tempered motorists going their separate ways.Instead, it was just the start of a confrontation involving an off-duty federal agent and gunfire outside the Town Center mall — and later Stand Your Ground self-defense claims — that a Palm Beach County jury likely will have to sort out.Deputy U.S. Marshal Angel Echevarria, 42, is charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a firearm in the case involving three alleged victims: A Pompano Beach man, his then 2-year-old son, and the man’s brother.
