NEWPORT, N.C. -

Two men involved in a road rage incident Sunday said they were acting in self-defense when they landed blows on a man who subsequently shot up their truck.

Video of the incident raced around the Internet after Bradley Turner, 40, of La Grange confronted the two on Sunday.

Will Berry,  20, and his friend, 21-year-old Nathan Brotzman, got out of a truck to fight back, and landed multiple punches on Turner. Turner's wife, Christy, then got out of the truck and handed him a gun, which he fired at Berry's truck.

The incident happened around 1 p.m. Sunday off U.S. 70 near Newport.

Berry, in an interview with WCTI, said the incident began about 40 minutes earlier, when Bradley Turner became upset over a situation involving passing on the highway.

That led Turner to follow them, they said, and he pulled over next to them. The video shows him walking over to the truck and throwing a punch.

"He assaulted both of us first before we landed a hit," Berry said. "It was complete self-defense."
