A verbal spat turned into a shooting incident today on the 101 Freeway.

The disagreement began between the occupants of two vehicles on a surface street in Hollywood, says, and the "suspect's car followed the other vehicle as it traveled onto the northbound Hollywood Freeway." The heated exchange escalated into gunfire, as the occupants of one vehicle fired shots while on the road, "wounding one passenger and grazing the other."

With the gunfire bringing the disagreement to a bloody halt, the driver of the vehicle that was fired on got off the freeway.
