A WV Sunday school teacher, Chris Harris, who was on his way home from church with his girlfriend is now facing serious criminal charges after firing a warning shot into the air.
According to WTOV,
“It was one of the most scariest experiences I have ever been though,” said CC Roxby, Harris’ fiancé. “They surrounded me saying some pretty vulgar things like they were going to rape my wife in front of me, cut me,” Harris said. Roxby said she called 911, but one man continued to be aggressive.
“The kid kept advancing on me, saying it wasn’t a real gun, and I would much rather shoot a shot into the air to prevent them from attacking me rather than them attacking me and me shooting someone,” Harris said.
“The cruisers were coming down the street at that point and the young men ran away,” Roxby said. “Instead of them following the gang, the officers arrested Chris for firing a shot into the air.”
