MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A reported confrontation between drivers led to shots being fired late Monday evening.

According to police reports, the victim and another man were driving down Grand Street when they came upon a red scooter driving slowly down the street.

It appeared the driver was trying to talk on a cellphone, the victims said.

At the next intersection at Douglass, they pulled along side the scooter and told the driver to move out of the way before taking off.

That’s when they heard gunshots behind them. The victims said they did not see the man on the scooter holding a weapon but said he continued driving behind them.

Officers said three bullets hit the victim’s Chrysler 300, but no one was hurt.

So far, police have not been able to locate the suspect.
