No injuries occurred when a man fired a shotgun into a beer truck early Friday morning at an Old Nashville Highway store, Rutherford County Sheriffâ€™s deputies said.
Two employees of Ajax Turner avoided injury when the man shot into the trailer of the semi-truck preparing to deliver beer at Kountry Korner Market, said Deputy Michael Moody.
The employees drove into the market about 4:30 a.m. followed by a pickup truck, the deputy said. They saw three men at a pay phone and stayed inside the truck because they felt the situation was suspicious.
In the rear view mirror, one of the employees saw a man walking up to the truck with a shotgun in his hand.
â€śHe fired a shot from the shotgun that hit the side of the trailerâ€ť as the driver drove away, Moody said.
Detective Troy Hooker is investigating.
