Police Investigate Report Of Shots Fired From Car

Authorities are not calling it a drive-by shooting, but they are investigating an incident on Ash Avenue this week in which a Cookeville resident reported being shot at by someone in a vehicle. It happened about 9:30 Tuesday night when someone identified by witnesses as a man named "Stewy" apparently got upset when he was asked to leave a home in the area. He got into a white car and allegedly fired several shots toward a man who was getting out of a vehicle at the corner of Ash Avenue and W. 6th St. Police say that man was the only eyewitness, although others in the area heard the gunfire. Authorities recovered seven spent shell casings in the immediate area. Investigation is continuing.
