Sheriff's Department Investigating "Shots Fired"
The Putnam County sheriff's department is keeping an eye out for potential troublemakers, who may be firing weapons at random targets east of Cookeville. According to a report by Deputy Jason Phy, a local resident reported seeing a blue Volkswagen with dark tinted windows driving in the area of Buck Mountain Road and Paragon Road and firing out the window of the vehicle at random targets. Phy was able to get to the area in just a few minutes and spent awhile looking for the vehicle, but was unable to make contact. Authorities say any number of charges could arise from someone firing a weapon, including vandalism and reckless endangerment.
