A 17-year-old complained to Paris police officers shortly before 2 p.m. Monday that an “unknown young male” demanded money from him and his friends at Paris Skate Park, saying they “had to pay him to skate there.”
“The unknown male produced a knife and took the victim’s skate board and fled the scene,” police department spokesman Curtis Garrett reported.
Also on Monday, a 34-year-old man reported to police that he was walking in approximately the 700 block of Northeast 5th Street on Saturday when someone shot at him.
He told officers he was on his way home about 5:30 a.m. when he walked past two other individuals. A few seconds later, he said, he heard a gunshot and heard the bullet hit a tree near him.
Both reports are under investigation, Garrett said.
Garrett said Paris police officers responded to 97 calls for service on Monday, resulting in three arrests.
