CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Chester Township police chief said a report of shots fired during a road-rage incident that occurred on Thursday morning is being investigated.

“When summertime hits, it seems like our road rage cases escalate,” said Cheif Craig Young.

Officers responded to Mayfield Road near Buckeye Drive just before noon after dispatchers received calls that there was an exchange of gunfire between two vehicles in the area.

Investigators determined that shots were fired from at least one of the vehicles while traveling east on Mayfield Road.

No injuries have been reported as a result of the road-rage incident.

“Anybody that would’ve been in the area would’ve been visiting a business... could’ve been victimized by this,” said Chief Young.

The chief said police are continuing to explore surveillance footage from the area in hopes of discovering new evidence.

“There’s still a lot of information we’re gathering, our officers and investigators are spending most of the day today trying to figure that out,” Young added.

This is a developing story.
