Officers responded around 10:40 a.m. to a call of shots fired on Interstate-270 but were uncertain whether the shooting was related to the pro-Trump parade, Hilliard Police spokeswoman Officer Andrea Litchfield said.

"That is something we are absolutely looking into," she told Fox News on Saturday.

Police later determined that the suspect fired a single shot from a 45-caliber pistol from his pick-up truck into the cab of a semi-truck with an attached trailer, FOX 28 reported.

Authorities said the two drivers were involved in some kind of altercation prior to the shot being fired, the Columbus Dispatch reported.
