Witnesses to the incident say that two pickups were involved.

"I saw them both speeding off the off-ramp," Jacob Saplin told Fox 8 after witnessing the vehicles. "I thought, you know, what this is either going to be there's going to be a fist fight or an argument or something like that."

"When the guy got out with a gun I said, 'Wow,' and I immediately picked up the phone and I went to call the police," he said. "I was just yelling, 'There's a gun, there's a gun!' Somebody please get here this could get really bad and I was just scared."

No injuries were reported.
