TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A teen is in custody following a incident in Tallahassee on Thursday.

According to arrest documents, around 2:30 p.m., a Leon County deputy with the SPIDER Unit witnessed a road rage incident on Mission Road near West Tharpe Street.

As the deputy began attempted to catch up with the vehicles to figure out what was going on, a call was received about shots fired with two vehicles involved.

No injuries were reported.

Following an investigation, one of the drivers, 19-year-old Davon Faulk, of Tallahassee, was taken into custody.

The arrest report states that Faulk admitted to firing two shots into the air after another driver in a Chevy Impala who he claimed pulled out in front of him at the intersection. Faulk said that he "wanted to scare the driver" and never pointed the gun directly at the other driver's vehicle.

The woman driving the Impala was still on the phone with 911 and was visibly upset when the deputy caught up to them.

Investigators later determined that the gun used in the incident had been reported stolen.

Faulk was arrested and charged with grand theft of a firearm, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and discharging a firearm from a vehicle.
