Shooting into car probed

Published: Fri, February 11, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m.

Staff report


Police are trying to determine who fired multiple shots into a car containing a 26-year-old man and four children on the East Side early Thursday.

The 26-year-old man was shot in the thigh and had flesh wounds to his face and chest from bullets that hit the silver 1999 Dodge Stratus he was driving. Reports do not indicate that any of the children in the car were injured.

The man told police he was at the intersection of Bauker Avenue and Jacobs Road with his children about 6:30 a.m. to pick up his estranged wife who had been visiting a friend. The man said someone came out of a house in the 2200 block of Bauker and began shooting.

Police spoke to the man’s estranged wife, who told officers she has a restraining order against her husband. Reports say the woman refused to answer police questions as to the identity of the shooter.

Police recovered multiple shell casings leading from the front of the house to its side. Those casings are being held as evidence.

Police also are holding the car the man was driving. The car reportedly contained several bullet holes.

Well if there was a restraining order why was he going to pick her up? There are some serious holes in this story.

The EastSide has many strange relationships . Sounds like one part of the triangle was bent out of shape .

The story yesterday left out the part about the restraining order. As we all knew, there was more to the story. Perhaps another twist will be added tomorrow. Stay tuned!
