Capt. Tim Whitt, spokesman for the Franklin City Police, reported on Tuesday that the department is continuing to investigate an incident reported last Friday afternoon.

“A city employee, while working, observed a subject arguing with another person who was in the 100 block of Langston Court,” said Whitt. “The suspect pulled out a gun and fired it at the person he was arguing with. The bullet missed the intended victim and struck the house. Upon police arrival neither the suspect nor victim were in the area. Officers attempted to interview some people in reference to the event, however, they were uncooperative.”

He added that the suspect is described as a black male wearing jeans, a black T-shirt, white dew rag and last seen running west on South Street toward Wilson Street.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Franklin Police at 562-8575 or Franklin Crime Solvers at 562-8599.

Information that leads to an arrest could earn the caller a cash reward while remaining anonymous.
