TALLADEGA -- Talladega police are investigating a report of someone shooting into a tow truck that was being used to repossess a car early Monday.
According to Capt. John McCoy, the tow truck driver was attempting to take back a car on the 110 block of Naff Avenue around 1 a.m. when he reported hearing a pop.
Immediately afterward, the rear windshield of his 2016 Dodge Ram tow truck shattered.
The car was being taken back from a woman who had not been able to keep up the payments. The woman and several other people were around while the car was being repossessed but were gone by the time police arrived on the scene, McCoy said.
The tow truck driver was not injured.
