MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC-TV) - 21-year-old Joel McGoldrick still has a bullet lodged in his side.

He was shot three times during a road rage incident Tuesday night.   

"I knew I got hit because I felt three taps," he said.
    
He was also shot in the arm and shoulder blade during a frightening encounter with another driver that started at Sam Cooper and East Parkway. McGoldrick says he inadvertently cut the other driver off.
    
"And he was shouting at me, saying, 'what was that about?' and 'why did you almost make me wreck?'"
    
The confrontation continued through the streets of Midtown. McGoldrick says the suspect approached his car at Parkway and Poplar and tried to reach through an open rear window.
    
Things came to a head at Eastmoreland and Pauline when the suspect fired four shots from inside his car. One of the bullets, which the victim believes was aimed at his head, ended up lodged in the passenger's side headrest. 
    
"I'm just glad he was a bad shot...bad aim," McGoldrick said.
    
Memphis Police identified Karlton Bradley as the angry motorist after McGoldrick picked him out of a photo line-up. 

Bradley is now wanted for attempted second degree murder.
    
"I mean, he had his wife of girlfriend and a kid in the car with him," said McGoldrick.
    
He says he fears for their safety and the safety of any other driver who might make Bradley mad.
    
"You never know...it could be them next," said McGoldrick.
    
Police are still searching for Karlton Bradley. If you know where he is, Memphis police urge you to call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
