TALLADEGA -- A brief gunfight near the Griffith Mobile Home Park on Shocco Springs Road in Talladega resulted in no injuries Tuesday, but the shots did damage a vehicle belonging to someone who does not appear to have been a participant.
According to Lt. Jimmy Thompson, a victim said he was walking down the road around 7 p.m. when someone inside a passing car fired a gun at him. Thompson said the man told investigators he returned fire but did not appear to hit anything.
A red 2008 Hyundai Sonata was parked in a nearby driveway and did sustain damage, however, Thompson said.
Little further information was available Thursday. The case remains under investigation.
