According to Sgt. Brandon Sheffert with Peoria Police, the incident happened around 7 a.m. near 91st Avenue and Happy Valley Road.
"We are one scene investigating a possible road rage incident where one driver shot at another striking them in the leg," Sgt. Sheffert said in a statement on Oct. 20. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a driver of a Dodge Charger who was shot in the leg.
The victim has non-life-threatening injuries.
"The male driving a red Honda Civic who shot the other male was detained and was not injured," police said.
Police say the investigation shows the driver of the Honda pulled in front of the Dodge and then stopped. The driver of the Dodge got out of his car and approached the driver of the Honda at the driver’s window.
"An altercation occurred at the window and at some point, the driver of the Honda shot at the male striking him in the leg," police said.
There was a child in the victim's car but is OK and a family member picked the child up from the scene.
"This is an active investigation and detectives are still trying to determine exactly what occurred. At this time, no arrests have been made. Arrests and/or charges will be determined after further investigation," police said.
Later in the day, Glendale Police reported another possible road-rage shooting. The shooting, according to police, involved a male, and it is unknown what caused the road rage situation.
