— Raleigh police say that a 27-year-old man fired a gun at a man in another vehicle while driving down Wade Avenue Thursday night.

Charlie Moon Lytle, of Raleigh, faces a charge of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

Police said Lytle and Timothy Loy Taylor got into a dispute, and at some point, they drove off in separate vehicles. However, Lytle followed Taylor from the Glenwood Avenue area and onto Interstate 440, police said.

When the vehicles got on Wade Avenue, near Blue Ridge Road, Lytle fired shots into Taylor’s vehicle, police said. No one was injured.

Lytle was being held in the Wake County Jail under a $250,000 bond Saturday evening. His first court appearance was set for Monday.
