Posted: April 15, 2013

A road rage incident turned into a shootout Sunday afternoon in North Philadelphia when a private security guard and another man traded fire at 13th and Wallace Streets around 2:15 p.m., police said.

The security guard pursued the man, who was in a car with several others, police said, to the 800 block of Reno Street, where the one man jumped out of the car and barricaded himself inside an apartment building.

The car he exited, a silver Buick Century with Delaware tags, drove away, police said.

It was not immediately clear who fired first, or how many shots were fired. A sizable police presence was at the scene around 3:15 on Sunday.
