But, instead of exchanging insurance following the fender-bender, the parties swapped bullets, as gunfire erupted, when an altercation between the two parties went to the next level.

Police responded to the scene in the 4900 block of Ave J at about 7:30 p.m., where two male juveniles were allegedly assaulting an unidentified male in a green car.

The man, fed up with the escalating situation, retreated to his car for a handgun and shot the two young men, witnesses told police.
