North Carolina Firefighter Shoots Bicyclist

Originally posted in the Forum:

This is a crazy story… an Asheville N.C. firefighter shoots a cyclist in the head because he is biking with a child on a busy roadway. Thankfully the cyclists helmet stops the bullet.

Officers said the victim was riding with his wife and had his 3-year-old son in a child seat attached to his bicycle when a driver approached him.

Police said the driver, Charles Diez, claimed he was upset that the victim was bike riding with his child on the heavily traveled Tunnel Road.

Diez pulled a gun and opened fire, hitting the victim in his bicycle helmet, according to police.
