According to investigators, he demanded that the passenger give his stuff back. That is when the passenger got out and ran and police say Bass fired the gun. Authorities say that single shot shattered one of the center’s windows where children were playing basketball.
"When the commotion went down, the kids were actually just startled,” said Rod Washington, spokesperson for the City of Monroe. “The workers came to see what happened and immediately went into lock down mode."
Workers at the recreation center said they acted upon impact of the bullet. They said they had all the kids go to a corner of the gym to protect them from any other flying bullets that might be coming through the windows. Bass is being held on $75 thousand bond. He told NBC 10/FOX 14 News that police have the wrong man.
