Two women were involved in a road rage shooting in Glendale on Wednesday afternoon. 

Glendale police say the incident began when a vehicle was cut off near 67th and Olive avenues. The vehicle that was cut off reportedly followed the other car to the area of 59th Avenue and Bell Road where a fight began. 

Police say a passenger was punched in the face and the woman driving the vehicle told the female suspect to back away because she was armed with a handgun. The suspect then approached the armed woman, punched her in the face and assaulted her until she was in a headlock. 

The armed woman told the suspect repeatedly to stop or she would fire the weapon. She then fired one shot, injuring the suspect and ending the fight. 

Good Samaritans reportedly provided aid and called police. The woman who was shot was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive. 

The woman who fired the shot is cooperating with police. No arrests have been made and no charges have been filed as of Thursday morning.
