Man allegedly fired at car in York City
A Spring Garden Township man faces assault charges after police say he fired at a car over the weekend.
Brian Jaquell Freeman, 23, of 1340 S. Ogontz St., will be charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count each of simple assault, prohibited possession of a firearm and reckless endangerment, among other charges, according to court records.
York City Police filed charges Tuesday, and Freeman had not been arrested as of Monday, online court records state.
Allegations: Police were called to the area of North Newberry Street near Smyser Street about 9:30 p.m. Saturday when the driver of the car flagged down an officer, saying Freeman had shot at his vehicle, documents state.
The victim, who was driving a BMW sedan, was in the area when a white Chevrolet Impala swerved into the oncoming traffic lane and pulled alongside him, police said.
Freeman, the driver of the Impala, pulled out a pistol and fired one shot at the victim's car, court documents allege.
A bullet hole could be seen in the upper part of the driver-side rear door, which police said was close to where the driver's seat was reclined back to.
Freeman was the only one in the car at the time, police said.
Freeman is a convicted felon and is not allowed to have a firearm, documents state. His driver's license was suspended during the time of the incident as well, according to police.
