    As officials were called the armed man who fired, stayed on the scene.

    “He told someone I drew my gun at him. We are both concealed carry. I was so scared, I couldn’t even get to my gun fast enough,” Ivory said. “My gun has a safety on it. They can do any type of test to see I never discharged my firearm or anything.”

    He was not arrested. Accordiing to reports he stated it was self-defense. Both parties obtain a conceal to carry. However, Aaliya Ivory never drew a weapon during the road rage incident. She pulled around the armed man and continued to keep driving, when he fired at her vehicle.
