BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - On Friday, May 8, Bowling Green Police responded to shots fired complaint in the area of North Sunrise.
Multiple officers responded to the area to help after receiving multiple calls.
When one officer arrived, he saw two vehicles in the middle of the roadway - a yellow Camaro and a black SUV that had collided in the 1400 block of North Sunrise.
Police spoke with the driver of the Camaro, who explained that when he was at a friend's house, an unknown vehicle sped through the area and an unknown male got out.
The driver says the unknown male screamed at a female saying, "Where is Cholo? Where is he at?"
The driver of the Camaro explained the man seemed to be waving a silver firearm in the air, and then got back into his car and drove in the direction of Glen Lily.
The driver of the Camaro circled the block a couple of times to possibly see where the other car went. When he headed back to his friend's house, the car came back around the corner at a high rate of speed.
The Camaro driver said he threw his car in reverse to avoid a collision but that the other car was accelerating towards him and was going to hit him. The cars collided.

Here is a bit of free advice: once disengaged from an event that was threatening, thank God and go your separate way. Only thing going to happen if you reengage is not going to go well even if you are not harmed.
I always thought demolition derbies would be funner if the drivers got to throw out nails and shoot at the other cars to try to disable them.
“...but did have a ratchet on him that could have appeared to be a firearm.”
Never take a ratchet to a gun fight.
From the article: When he headed back to his friend's house, the car came back around the corner at a high rate of speed.
And what to do when maybe the perpetrator is looking for you too, eh? It seems reasonable to ensure you're not in Condition Orange before you drop back to Condition Yellow.
