Akron, OH – The Akron police are asking for help, as they are searching for a gunman who fired shot at children as they played basketball on their street. Thankfully, none of the kids were injured but the police are trying to track him down.
The suspect was driving a white Pontiac G6 with dark tinted windows and temporary tags. He was speeding down the street and one of the kids yelled for him to slow down. The driver stopped the car, got out and started arguing with the kids, then pulled out a gun, aimed it at the kids and fired a couple shots.
The kids ran for cover and the driver jumped back in his car and sped off. The entire incident was captured on camera, and the police will be following all leads. If you have any information, you can call the Akron Police Department Detective Bureau at 330-375-2490.
This is really sad because this story could have turned out a lot worse. Any of those precious children could have been shot or even killed. As a community, we have to come together and stop this type of nonsense happening in our neighborhoods.
