FORT WORTH, Texas – A Texas Christian University shuttle driver was arrested Tuesday morning following a road-rage incident where a gunshot was fired on campus.

The shooting was reported just before 7:30 a.m. It prompted a lockdown and put the university on high-alert. The lockdown was lifted at 8:05 a.m.

Fort Worth police said the incident stemmed from an argument between the two shuttle bus employees.

One of the drivers fired at the other, but the gunshot missed, police said.

The driver then allegedly rammed the other driver’s shuttle before he fled the scene. Police caught him a short time later.

Police said the two men worked for the Roadrunner shuttle service, which is used by the university. Police did not say if any students were on board.
