An argument between a garage owner in Lod and a truck driver turned violent on Wednesday when the garage owner pulled out a firearm and shot several bullets at the driver. The truck driver was moderately injured and rushed to the Assaf Harofe hospital near Rishon Lezion for treatment. Family members from both sides arrived at the garage, and resumed the dispute, with violence again breaking out in the form of a mass brawl. One of those involved fled the scene in a truck, and struck a child, wounding him slightly. Police have arrested the shooter and the truck driver. More arrests are expected.
