Driver reports shots fired by pedestrian


A city man, 51, reported that while driving, he mistakenly thought a man walking down Niles Road near Burton Street Southeast at 4:55 p.m. Monday was a friend of his, and he tried to get his attention.

However, when the pedestrian got close enough, the motorist realized it was actually a male he has problems with and whose girlfriend has a restraining order against him.

The pedestrian pulled out a gun and fired a shot at the driver, the driver said.

The driver said he was not injured, but he didn’t know if his vehicle was hit because the vehicle already had bullet holes in it from a previous shooting.
