Argument leads to gunfire

By Ed Brock

An argument between two drivers apparently led to one driver shooting a gun at the other.

The victims told police that around 10:20 p.m. Sunday they were driving on Patton Road and were turning around at the intersection of Patton and Doncaster roads when a man in a red Dodge pickup truck almost hit them, according to a police report. One of the victims began arguing with the man in the pickup, after which the man in the pickup leaned out of his driver's side window and began shooting at the victims as he drove past their car.

Clayton County police Officer Matthew Whitton reported finding several .45 caliber shell casings at the scene. Neither victim was hit by gunfire and the man in the pickup was not captured.
