Assault causing injury at the 200 block of
3rd Avenue. Police were patrolling the area
when they were alerted to a fight at Johnny’s
Hall of Fame. When they arrived they found the
victim laying on his back, unconscious with
swollen eye sockets and bleeding from his nose
and mouth. Several possible suspects were identified
by witnesses and questioned. The bouncer told
police he was in the middle of breaking up one
fight when this fight started. He identified
one man as the one he saw on top of the victim,
beating him with his fists, but he said there
were also two other possible assailants who
had fled the bar. Another witness said he saw
that same man put the victim in a headlock and
punch him repeated in the face until they went
to the ground. He also said he had arrived at
the bar on the same party bus as the suspect,
but he didn’t know him. The victim was taken
to the hospital, and the police were awaiting
surveillance footage from the bar.

in the store, Chester’s Chicken, where one person
fired a shot at another who was among a group
of people. She said three guys originally entered
the store, one left and two remained. Two more
guys came in and asked where the toilet paper
was. She pointed it out to them. Then, one of
the two guys attacked the two guys who were
already in the store. She said the fight eventually

the guys fired a shot at the others. Nothing
