A road rage incident at the intersection of Mill Road and Charles Street, Liverpool escalated after a man produced a gun. A white Toyota Corolla and a Grey Suzuki Baleno stopped at the intersection just before 3pm on Sunday, 17th April 2022, and the occupants of both vehicles began to argue. A male passenger from the Toyota produced a firearm before the driver and passenger of the Suzuki disarmed him in a violent scuffle. They took the firearm and returned to their car. The Suzuki then left the scene.
The incident was captured by a witness on camera.
