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.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
