*At 2:30 Friday afternoon, Kristopher Douglas Battle, 25, of Pine Street said while visiting his girlfriend at McArthur Apartments, he responded to a knock at the door. An unknown male entered and a fight ensued.

He was treated at Wayne Memorial Hospital and later released.

*Mack Jensey George, 49, Creech Street, told police a man shot at his vehicle after a brief altercation around 10:45 p.m. Friday.
