LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A prolonged road rage incident involving two vehicles led to a shootout in a Lawrence grocery store parking lot that killed two men, police there said.

The incident happened Tuesday night when the driver of a sport utility vehicle and the occupants of a pickup truck interacted and argued over the truck’s loud tailpipe, the Lawrence Journal-World reported.

Police said the interaction went on for several miles before both vehicles whipped into the parking lot, nose-to-nose, and the SUV driver and a passenger in the truck got out armed with handguns and exchanged gunfire, hitting each other.

The truck passenger, Zachary Sutton, 22, of Lawrence, died at the scene, police said. The SUV driver, 53-year-old Monty Ray Amick, also of Lawrence, was taken to a hospital where he died from his injuries.

Police say the driver and another passenger of the truck were not injured and have not been charged in the incident.
