Reports of shots fired during a road rage incident near the 3800 block of Moss St. occurred this afternoon, according to Lafayette Police spokesperson.

At 3:20 P.M., police say there were two vehicles involved, and one vehicle was said to have fired shots at another vehicle.

Although no injuries were reported, an eye-witness says that a SUV was chasing a car.

"As the vehicles were driving on Kevin Drive, the SUV hit the car, and it rammed into the neighbor's yard," they say.

The witness said the vehicles raced up Summit Drive, towards Shoppers Value Food, very dangerously and at a high-speed.

Police do not have the identity of the suspects, but a possible license plate was obtained.

Eye-witness said the car's bumper was dragging as they left the scene on Kevin Drive.

LPD say it is an on-going investigation.

The witness said they were thankful no children were around, and that the continuous speeding in the neighborhood needs to stop.

If the public knows anything about this crime, you're asked to call Crimestoppers at 232-Tips.
