The driver said after the altercation both men got in their vehicles and drove off.  He said when he stopped at a traffic light at Balm Riverview Road and Rhodine Road a white van was parked near the intersection. He says a man got out of the van and began walking towards him.

The driver of the Tahoe said he drove away and as he was driving away the man fired several shots, hitting his vehicle.
