This next suspect was never caught, but he was reported to have been using the back parking lot of a local clothing chain for target practice.
An employee of the store had parked and was about to go inside when she heard a loud pop. She said an older man was sitting inside his truck and aimed a handgun out the window and fired. He then began jumping around because the spent shells were hot and had landed on him in the truck.
She said he fired multiple rounds and was there for about 10 minutes. But she did not get a make, model or license plate.
She said the subject then drove past her out of the lot.
The manager of the store told police there were no cameras installed that would have captured the event, but this type of thing happens all the time. She said cameras would be ordered. The officer noted in his report that the woods behind the store were very thin and separated the store from the interstate.
The officer collected a few spent .22 shells, but had no other evidence.
