A local man was shot and the violence triggered a car accident. The victim, according to witnesses who spoke to a reporter, was standing outside of a local bar minding his own business when shots were fired. The shots came from the gun of an unknown assailant. The fusillade of gunshots resulted in the unsuspecting man being shot in the leg.
The shooting of the man outside the bar didn’t trigger the accident. That shooting was just the beginning of the gun violence.
The 31 year old man lay wounded on the street when a couple nearby ran into trouble. The man, a 28 year old, and the woman, a 25 year old, were sitting in a car parked on the side of the bar. When they heard shooting, they tried to get out of the area. They were leaving the scene at a high rate of speed when their vehicle struck another vehicle that was parked on the street, authorities reported to a local station.
