Shooting in Old Capital

Just after twelve noon today, shots rang out in the Old Capital on Hondo Street. The shots were aimed at a patron at the popular fast food joint Pratt’s. The gunman dressed in khaki shorts and a grey undershirt pulled out what appeared to be a nine millimeter pistol and fired at least six shots in the direction of his target. He left behind his yellow bicycle as he fled the scene. An officer, who had just purchased food set chase after the gunman, who turned out to be a minor. Unfortunately by the time he was caught, he had already disposed of the weapon. The person that was targeted later took the gunman’s bike and rode off in the opposite direction. A News Five crew was at the scene as the incident unfolded. It has left several residents in the area shaken.

    The officer showed great restraint capturing a dangerous criminal alive. Adult or minor, it doesn’t matter — trying to murder with a gun justifies death.
