Mail Carrier Incident in Hendersonville

On September 2, 2017, at approximately 12:30 pm, (30 minutes past noon), the Hendersonville Police Department responded to an aggravated assault around the area of West Harbor Drive. According to the complainant, he was delivering mail in the area when a dark colored sedan occupied by two black males passed by at a high rate of speed. The complainant stated that one of the subjects in the vehicle pointed what appeared to be a gun in his direction and fired the gun. Even though the gun made a sound as if it were a real gun, there was no evidence that bullets were fired from the gun. According to the information collected thus far, it is questionable if this was a real gun.

Even though there is no evidence at this point that the weapon produced projectiles, the fact remains that the actions of the person that pointed the gun in the direction of the complainant placed the complainant in fear, which constitutes the crime of aggravated assault. It should be noted that the complainant did not sustain any injuries from the incident.
