(Memphis 5/11/2010) A simple car accident ended with violence after both drivers pulled guns Sunday night.
Now, a man is in jail after the case of road rage and another man now claims self-defense.
The accident-turned-shooting happened along South Third near Bodley in South Memphis.
Charged with two counts of aggravated assault, 21-year-old Carnell Lowe was booked into jail with gunshots in his leg and foot.
To add insult to injury, police say the man who shot him did it in self-defense.
According to police, Lowe got into an accident with another driver, 28-year-old Lawrence Harwell who asked if Lowe was okay. Instead, they ended up arguing.
Then, police say, Lowe threatened to get a gun and Harwell said, "Don't do that bro".
When Lowe grabbed his gun from his trunk Harwell opened fire.
When police got to the scene, Harwell admitted firing and said, "I have a gun and permit."
Harwell's grandmother says she doesn't blame him and would have probably done the same thing.
Lowe has bonded out of jail and police say he admitted he got shot when he threatened to turn the fender bender violent.
