Officers responded to reports of shots being fired in the 800 block of North Meadows Court as part of a supposed "road rage" incident at 5:35 p.m. Feb. 20.
Instead, one of the responding officers wrote, they learned from the 24-year-old victim and a witness that what they initially thought was gunfire was actually breaking glass caused by one of two suspects throwing a bottle of liquid at a window, shattering it. Damage was estimated at $200.
