The Zanesville Police Department is investigating a weekend shooting incident. Detective Sergeant Harry Taylor says it happened in the early morning hours of Saturday. Taylor says a 35-year-old male and a friend were asked by two males for a ride from a Linden Avenue Bar. The detective says when they arrived at their destination; the two males and the 35-year-old victim had a confrontation regarding money. The victim fled and was chased. In the 600 block of Cliffwood Avenue a struggle happened…a gun was pulled out by one of the two males and a shot was fired. The bullet only struck a nearby home. Detective Taylor says the victim fled again and flagged down a police officer. The suspects fled in the victim’s rental car, which was recovered later that morning.
