On Christmas Eve, two men got into a "mutual road rage incident" which ended with both vehicles stopping in the parking lot of a Martinsville, Virginia parking lot. One driver attacked the other with a baseball bat, while the other pulled out a gun and shot the other in the leg.
From a Sheriff's office release, as quoted in an article:
