Road rage led to gunfire, a three-vehicle crash, a school lockdown and multiple arrests Friday in Garden City, police said.
A preliminary investigation found two vehicles were headed northbound on Middlebelt from Cherry Hill around 2:40 p.m. "when an altercation between the occupants ... resulted in an exchange of gunfire," authorities said in a statement.
As the cars continued driving, at least one collided with a third vehicle near Marquette Street, according to the release.
