Pella PD releases further information on Monday's shooting

Pella — On December 17, 2012, at 8:29 am the Pella Police Department responded to reports of an armed man chasing a person in Pella’s Brook Circle neighborhood.  Subsequent reports from eye witnesses indicated that the assailant was firing a handgun at the fleeing man as they ran through the neighborhood.
