Gilbert police say they've released a man who fatally shot another driver after a roadside confrontation.

Mitchell Fickes was pronounced dead at a hospital after the Saturday evening shooting. The 56-year-old had apparently gotten out of his truck with a gun and was approaching a pickup driven by a 23-year-old man when that man got out and opened fire.

Police said Sunday it appeared the unidentified 23-year-old acted in self-defense and he was released after questioning. The Maricopa County Attorney will review the case.
