No one was injured in a shooting incident on Barkwood Drive in Clarksville last night that reportedly started over a balloon.
A news release from Clarksville Police says a confrontation began after a two-year old took a balloon from a house that was going to be shown to a realtor. When the balloon was retrieved from the child by a 24-year old male, an argument began with some of the residents at the dead end of Barkwood.
The 24-year old man and a 41-year old woman with him retreated to a car and attempted to leave when a ford thunderbird with five men inside arrived and tried to block their path.
The males got out of the Thunderbird and one began firing shots at the victims with a handgun. The victim driving the car attempted to back away, but got stuck in a culvert. The five men in the Thunderbird got back into their vehicle and fired more shots as they drove away.
The vehicle had several bullet holes, as did a nearby home. Police were not able to locate the suspects, but have issued an arrest warrant for 22-year old James Antonio Bagwell of Clarksville, who is facing criminal attempted homicide charges.
