New Hampshire state police say a man's been charged with assault following a road-rage incident in Grafton in which a driver was shot.

Police said one of the drivers, who is 46, was shot in the abdomen with a handgun. He underwent surgery and is expected to survive.

The other driver, identified as 38-year-old Joseph Brown, was arrested. He's scheduled to appear in court Tuesday. It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer.
