A Lancaster city man was charged for shooting another man in the lower torso after a minor vehicle crash Friday night in the first block of North Broad Street, Lancaster city police said. 

Leonardo Torres-Fajardo, 24, of the first block of North Broad Street, pulled out a handgun and shot a 46-year-old man in the lower torso after the two had been in an argument and a fight following a minor vehicle crash around 10:19 p.m., police said. 

The 46-year-old was taken to the hospital and is expected to recover, police said. 

Torres-Fajardo got the gun from his vehicle after the crash, but before the argument, police said.
