‘He pulled out the gun, and turned and shot at him, three times,’ said Dolly Young to WKYC. 

The driver then got back inside his car and drove off. None of the children were injured.  

Young’s 11-year-old son Alex was in the group who were playing outside along with Markeise Smith, 15.

'He should be locked up for what he did because you shouldn't shoot at kids because they tell you to slow down,' Markeise Smith said in an interview

Footage of the incident was caught on cellphone camera and Akron police are now investigating the incident.

‘This can be traumatic for anyone, especially a 15- and an 11-year-old trying to play. Any information can help. It’s like a puzzle. Every piece helps bring this person to justice and have them answer for their crime,’ Capt. Dave Laughlin said.
