    Harper said at about 8:30 a.m. Friday, a report of shots being fired in the area of St Paul Street and 29th Avenue was made. Upon arrival at the scene, MPD patrol officers were advised a pedestrian had shot at a man who was driving down the road. Officers learned that several bullets impacted the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was not injured.
