One person suffered serious injuries during what appears to be a road-rage shooting in Phoenix. 

Around 8:45 a.m. Wednesday, officers were called to the area of 35th Avenue and Cheryl Drive where a shooting occurred after a reported conflict between drivers. 

ABC15 crews at the scene saw shell casings on the roadway and a red coupe with bullet holes.

Phoenix police said a victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries during the shooting.

Unfortunately, no suspect description is available yet, and police did not provide more information on what led to the incident.

“The victim driver did what we would recommend and slowed down and moved over to get out of that driver's way when the suspect pulled up alongside the victim,” said Sgt. Vince Lewis with the Phoenix Police Department. 

Last year, Phoenix was near the top of the list of cities with the worst road rage. According to AAA, tailgating is the number one thing that sets people off. Shockingly, AAA also said one in 15 drivers admit to getting out of the car for a confrontation or even bumping and ramming another driver.
