Man arrested for shooting at tow truck
Andy Simmons Staff Writer
A man was arrested for allegedly firing shots with a hand gun at a tow truck trying to repossess his vehicle Sunday.
According to a police report, at around 9:55 p.m., officers responded to the 600 block of Smoot Street to a report of shots fired. Officers approached the scene using tactical shields and made contact with two victims and two witnesses, escorting them away from the scene and to a safer location.
The report said that both parties gave the same description of an unknown black male with dreadlocks and a white T-shirt came out of the residence on Smoot Street, claiming that they could not repossess a truck and allegedly firing a silver hand gun. All parties stated that the shooter only shot one shot, but were unsure if he was pointing the firearm at anyone or at the ground.
The report said that officers were able to make contact with the resident of the house, who told them that she would send out her grandson. The man who matched the description of the witnesses, later identified as Carlos Terrel Gray, 22, of LaGrange, exited the residence with his hands up in the air.
According to the report, officers then searched the residence and found a silver Cobra handgun and a .380 cal shell casing. Both were taken in as evidence. Gray was charged with two counts of reckless conduct and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
