A Concord man was arrested Wednesday evening in what Huntersville police say was an alleged road rage-fueled shooting.

No injuries were reported.

Huntersville police said they were called about 5:40 p.m. Wednesday to the 17000 block of Davidson-Concord Road (N.C. 73). That is near Bradford Park, east of N.C. 115.
