Police are looking for the man they say hit two teens on a moped Thursday night because he believed the teens were riding his stolen moped.
One of the teen’s sister says that minutes after the man hit the boys on Russell Cave Road, he came by her home and fired multiple shots into the residence.
Brenda Garcia, who is 6 months pregnant, says she and her 4-year-old nephew were inside when shots were fired.
“I started hearing the shots, so I just kind of stood there and was like ‘oh my God, what is that?’ And they just kept coming, shot after shot after shot. And I just stood there and like the pieces of the wall were just going everywhere and some got on me and I started freaking out and that’s when I called police,” she said.
Garcia says the man had come to the house earlier and told her mother that her brother had stolen his moped. She says her mother offered to pay for it and make things right.
“He was just like ‘no, we will look for him’ and then that is when we started looking for him, too,” Garcia said.
But police say the man caught up with the teens first and ran into them with his SUV on Russell Cave near Loudon, and then ran off. Moments later, they say Presley Reed went by Garcia’s home and fired shots into it.
Garcia’s brother and the other teen are expected to be OK.
Reed is still on the loose. He was last seen driving a silver Dodge Durango. If you have any information on where he could be you are asked to contact Lexington Police
