On Aug. 21, around 1:20 a.m., a shooting was reported on W. King Street in Boone. The Boone Police department stated in a press release that it appeared a quarrel began between the occupants of a truck and at least one pedestrian on the sidewalk. As the truck was driving westbound on W. King Street in the 600 block, the suspect allegedly fired multiple shots from a handgun, striking the occupied truck three time.
Two unoccupied businesses were struck as well. None of the three occupants in the truck were injured.
The suspect ran on foot and eventually returned to Wilkes County where he lives, according to Boone Police. The three occupants of the vehicle were charged with underage consumption of alcohol.
