FALL RIVER - Route 24 north was the scene of a shooting, with a Fall River man under arrest after allegedly firing a gun into another driver's car while on the road.

According to Massachusetts State Police, just after 10:15 p.m., Trooper Jacob Hass responded to reports that a driver in a Nissan Altima had brandished a firearm from his car and shot at another vehicle. The trooper, positioned several miles north of the alleged shooting site, saw a Nissan Altima pass him and moved to intercept it.

When the Nissan exited onto Route 44 and pulled into a gas station, Hass drove up and ordered the driver out of the car and onto the ground, state police said.

Ricky Lorenzi, 26, of Fall River, was arrested without incident; according to state police, troopers who searched Lorenzi and his vehicle found a loaded .25-caliber ACP pistol in the car.

According to a state police press release, two troopers located the victim of the alleged shooting and saw damage to the person's vehicle "consistent with that of the strike of a .25-caliber bullet."
