Investigators say Reynolds Sr. called his son and told him what had happened. Meanwhile detectives say Gritzinger got back in his vehicle and drove east on Rhodine Road. They say when he approached the intersection of Rhodine Road and Balm Riverview Road, Reynolds Jr. was waiting for him.

Detectives say Reynolds fired multiple shots at Gritzinger’s vehicle with a laser sight equipped pistol striking the front passenger door three times and the passenger side windshield once.

Officials say Gritzinger sped off and was not injured.

Authorities say they issued an arrest warrant for Reynolds Jr. on Friday and he turned himself in at the Orient Road Jail.
