At about 3:40 a.m., a woman and man were walking north on Center Street in the crosswalk when an eastbound vehicle on Stewart Street approached them at high speed, nearly striking them. A verbal confrontation ensued between the pedestrians and the vehicle occupants when one occupant exited the vehicle and fired two shots towards the pedestrians. The female walker was struck with fragments from one of the bullets and sustained a non-life threatening wound to her leg.
