Local resident shoots at people who stopped for car trouble
SPANAWAY, Wash. (AP) — Two people were shot in the head after having car trouble along a Spanaway road.
The News Tribune reports the incident happened just before 6:45 a.m. Tuesday on Military Road East.
Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says three people were driving in a sedan when they had car trouble. They pulled over to figure out what was wrong.
A man stepped out of a home and yelled at the people in the car and pointed an AR-15 rifle at them. The victims got into their car and started to drive away.
The man fired a shot through the rear window, grazing a passenger before hitting the driver’s head.
The driver crashed into the bushes, and they called 911.
The man was arrested on three assault charges.
