Shot rings out near Camp St. store

An early-morning dustup at a Camp Street convenience store led to at least one shot fired Friday, but ended in no arrests, police said.

A resident called Sandusky police at about 3:45 a.m. Friday after hearing someone fire at least one round near 7-Eleven, according to a Sandusky police report.

A customer later told police he was standing near the store’s front door when he heard a heated argument and one person say, “I got something for you; I will kill you,” the report said.

The man then heard a single shot and saw two vehicles speed off and head south on Camp Street, the report said. A clerk noticed a Ford Escape tailing a Ford Contour closely.

The witness thought a bullet had been fired into the Contour, the report said.

About two hours prior, the same Escape, occupied by two men and two women, had stopped at 7-Eleven, the clerk told police.

During that incident, a man exited the Escape, punched a customer, then hopped back in the Escape before the victim hit the ground, the report said.

Sandusky police are now awaiting surveillance footage from the store in hopes they’ll be able to retrieve a license plate number.

By late Friday morning, no one had yet responded to the hospital with a gunshot wound, the report said.
