Man Accused Of Repeatedly Firing At Gasoline Pump

(AP) A man who police said fired gun shots into a gasoline pump on Saturday morning was expected to be charged with three felonies when he's released from a local hospital.

Police said the man went to the Sunoco gas station on New Haven Road and fired a shotgun at a gas pump several times while customers stood nearby.

Luckily, nobody was injured and the pump did not explode.

The man drove off and struck two cars and was injured in a crash following the shooting incident.

Police have an arrest warrant for the man and his hospital room is being guarded 24-hours a day by two police officers.
