A Melville man was arrested for firing gunshots at the driver of a vehicle with whom he has a dispute on the Southern State Parkway on Tuesday, New York State police said.

Joe Nunez was charged with assault, attempted assault and criminal possession of weapon.

Police said the 25-year-old fired two shots into a vehicle driven by a Brooklyn man, who was struck once in the shoulder. The second bullet struck the driver’s side door.

The shooting was the result of a dispute between Nunez and the victim, police said.

Nunez will be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Central Islip.

State police ask anyone with information on this case to call them at 516-561-8492. All calls will be confidential.
