While en route, officers learned that Marcus Coleman, 39, of Fairmont, “fired five shots” then “fled the scene and allegedly shot three more times,” while going down Fairmont Avenue, officers said.

After obtaining video footage, officers were able to “hear the threats made by [Coleman] and then the shots followed right after”; in the footage, officers say they saw a car flee the scene.

In the area where the footage showed Coleman firing the weapon, investigators located seven of the eight spent shell casings, according to the complaint.

Later that day, officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle matching the description of Coleman’s, which was driven by “a female subject with scratches on her neck,” officers said. The woman gave further details on the events that happened and the location of Coleman and the weapon he fired. According to the complaint, Coleman is a convicted felon and is not allowed to possess a gun.

Coleman has been charged with wanton endangerment. He is being held in North Central Regional Jail.
