HAMMOND- One man is in the hospital and a second is potentially a suspect in a road rage shooting along I-12.

Deputies said the men were involved in a dispute while they were traveling the interstate in Tangipahoa Parish Friday. One of the men exited the interstate at Airport Road and was followed by the second person. They stopped at a gas station near the exit.

The victim was shot by the other man in the leg and was shot a second time during a scuffle.

The victim was taken to an area hospital and is expected to survive.

Deputies are still investigating the incident and said charges are expected. Names are being withheld until charges are filed.
