PHOENIX (AP) – Phoenix police say a 36-year-old man may be prosecuted after being wounded in a shootout resulting from a road-rage incident.
According to police, the man was shot by another motorist who returned gunfire in a store parking lot following a “traffic altercation” early Thursday morning.
Officer James Holmes says the man’s wound isn’t life-threatening.
Holmes says witnesses support a 24-year-old man’s account that he pulled into the parking lot following a traffic altercation and was about to park when the 36-year-old man drove up and began shooting him.
Holmes says the 24-year-old man then returned fire and called 911 while the other man drove off.
The other man later turned up when friends called 911 for help for his gunshot wound.
Identities weren’t released.
