The victim is punching the air or shadow boxing but no one is near him. Then, the victim throws a traffic cone at the vehicle. He doubles over and stumbles as he tries to run away. He collapses on the sidewalk. Detectives located the vehicle in the parking lot of a building on Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd. The suspect told police that he fired a shot as a warning.
