Top News

Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man wanted for firing a handgun at two people last month in the area of University Avenue.

Police said a man whose Nissan was stolen drove to Metcalf Street with a friend to locate the vehicle at about 12:20 a.m. Sept. 20.

The victims saw a Nissan parked on Metcalf and stopped to ask males near the vehicle about it. One man approached, lifted his shirt, and exposed a tattoo across his stomach.

The car owner and his friend left and saw the Nissan drive off. The victims tried to follow the Nissan when the man with the tattoo stepped out of the vehicle, pointed a handgun at them, and fired several shots.

Police described the suspect as in his 20s, 5 feet 4 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall, and 130 to 140 pounds with the tattoo of unknown design across his stomach. He was wearing a gray hoodie, light colored shorts, and shoes.

Police opened an first-degree attempted murder investigation.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME from a cell phone.
