I'm glad she turned herself in and I'm especially glad the police quickly let her depart.
WPXI is reporting the story as this:
Road Rage Incident On Parkway West Ends In ShootingTime will tell if this is the real story, or not. Hard to get too overblown as the names of those involved are not being released and being a bit skeptical is always prudent.

PITTSBURGH -- Police said a man threw a punch and a woman turned the tables, pulling out a gun during a violent road rage incident on the Parkway West.
The woman, 24, of Pittsburgh, was pulling onto Interstate 376 from Route 28 when police said she cut off another driver.
Officials report the other driver, a male from Ohio, reacted by speeding in front of the woman and halting traffic, causing her to stop.
State Police said the man walked on foot to the driver's side of the woman's car and punched her in the face.
That is when authorities said the woman pulled out a licensed firearm and shot the man in the stomach.
The woman turned herself in to police after the incident. She has since been released.
The man drove himself to a nearby hotel, where he was transported to Allegheny General Hospital.
Officials have declined to name the parties involved until after the district attorney has reviewed the case.
