GA: Gunfight erupts over car dispute

This is only the second case that I have found where two people with concealed carry permits got into a gunfight.  It is an extremely rare circumstance. 

Sandy Springs Police responded to a shooting just after 11pm on June 10, 2015 at 3295 River Exchange Drive. A man was found in the parking lot with a gunshot wound to the chest. The male with the gunshot wound has been identified as the suspect, 53-year old Kevin Gandy of Lawrenceville. The shooting was a result of a disagreement over a vehicle. The suspect was attempting to retrieve the vehicle for his niece and pointed a gun at the victim, Sean McDuffie, the ex-boyfriend of the niece. The victim retreated and also had a gun in his possession. Multiple shots were fired between the two individuals and the suspect was shot in the chest. The victim was not injured and it was determined that the victim shot the suspect in self- defense. Both Gandy and McDuffie possess a valid Georgia Weapons Carry License. The suspect is in serious but stable condition at North Fulton Hospital and has been charged with Aggravated Assault and Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony.
