Zephyrhills, Florida -- Deputies say a fight between two brothers escalated into a shootout that landed one of them in jail Sunday.

Zephyrhills Police say around 2:15 Sunday afternoon John Webster and his brother, Elijah, got into a verbal fight in a truck parking area on South Avenue, east of Airport Road. The fight turned violent when John pulled out a gun and fired several shots at his brother. 

At that point, Elijah, in his car at the time, also reportedly produced a handgun and fired a shot back toward John just before fleeing the area.

Luckily, no one got shot but John was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. 

Police are continuing to investigate and say there may be additional charges in the incident.
