Witness says man shot at group

NEW CASTLE — New Castle police are investigating an alleged gun threat made to a group of men on the Lower East Side.

A neighbor who witnessed the incident around 3:45 p.m. Wednesday said someone fired a gun in the 400 block of Spruce Street.

The witness said he was standing on a porch on Countyline Street when he saw a red car stop and the occupants get out. One of them threatened three men who were walking on the road and said, “I will give you three seconds to run,” then he fired a shot at the group.

He said the three who had been walking ran away and another pedestrian picked up the spent shell casing from the ground.

Police said the men were all gone when they arrived and they could not find anyone in the area.

It’s been a unique week on the marriage front. Actress Jodie Foster married her longtime girlfriend, while a lesbian trio that wed last year, who bill themselves as a “throuple,” have announced they are expecting. What’s your take on alternative unions?

I’m against it. I believe in one man, one woman.
I’m OK with it. As long as they’re adults, they can marry whoever they want.
A lesbian “throuple?” Really? SMH.
