    When police walked up to the three men, one of them took of running. Police chased him down and alley, that’s when the man took out a gun and pointed it at the officers.
    He kept running after officers shot at him, but they eventually caught up with him. The man was not hit.

    He points a gun at the cops,the cops shoot at him and miss.Sounds like the cops need some time at the shooting range.

    Isnt this the second time this week someone is running from the police and than stop and turn around and point a gun at them,my question is why don't they ever fire any shots at the police?
