Anniston police Sgt. Chris Sparks said the 22-year-old victim has been approached several times by two teenaged suspects since Friday. Sparks said the suspects pointed a handgun at the victim on the 2600 block of Noble Street.
One suspect, a 17-year-old Anniston male, was charged with discharging a firearm into a vehicle on Saturday, Sparks said. Sparks declined to release the teen’s name due to his age.
The suspect was released on a $15,000 bond Saturday from Anniston City Jail. The teen was charged with shooting at the 22-year-old man’s car on Aug. 1, while the victim was driving between 19th Street and Davis Avenue. The victim was not injured during the shooting. Sparks said more arrests are expected to be made in the shooting.
The victim, Michael Kirksey, said every time the two suspects see his car in Anniston they threaten him. Kirksey said he’s upset the teen who was arrested got out of jail so quickly and continues to harass him.
“I just want them off the street,” he said. “I just want them to leave me and my car alone.”
Any suspect could be charged with intimidating a witness, a felony.
