A Grove City man told police the driver of another vehicle fired a gun at his car after cutting him off in traffic about 10:50 p.m. Jan. 26 on McDowell Road.
The victim said he was driving southbound in the left lane on McDowell Road near Farr Court when a blue car sped past him in the right-turn lane. The blue car then cut in front of the victim, prompting him to honk his horn at the other vehicle, according to the report.
The driver of the blue car came to a stop in the middle of McDowell Road for about 15 seconds before continuing to head south on McDowell and getting into the left-turn lane at White Road.
The victim said the driver of the other car pointed a gun at him as they waited at the traffic light, according to reports. When the light turned green, the victim said he heard a loud bang as he made a right turn. When he arrived at his destination, he checked his car and found a bullet hole in the rear quarter panel on the driver's side of his car, reports stated. He then called police.
No suspects have been identified.

* A resident in the 2700 block of Queensway Drive reported her neighbor hired a tree-service company to cut down her tree without her permission.
The company cut down the tree on Jan. 22 and left it in pieces on the woman's driveway, reports stated. She told police she contacted someone at the company, which admitted to cutting down the tree but refused to say who had hired them.
The woman told police she later learned her neighbor arranged for the tree to be removed because it hung over into his property and covered up his solar panels. She said he had not asked for her permission to have the tree cut down but had offered to plant another one in its place.
A police officer contacted the neighbor, who said he thought the tree was partially on his property. He told police he had asked the woman several times to remove the tree and she had agreed to do so two years earlier but had never followed through.
The woman said her attorney had advised her to file a police report so she could resolve the issue in civil court.
