Officers quickly determined the subjects had not actually seen vehicle firing shots, but only say the vehicle fleeing the scene at high speed.

The suspect’s vehicle was later located on Jefferson Street and the male driver matched the description provided by witnesses. They then informed police that he was the victim and that someone on Lindsey Street had actually been shooting at him. This was further evidenced by several bullet holes found on his vehicle.

The victim stated he was driving on Lindsey Street, when he felt his tire go flat and then looked up to see an unknown black male pointing a gun at him. He advised he then fled from the area.
