MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Murfreesboro man was arrested for shooting at cars while driving Sunday.

21-year-old Mohamadu Bah called police Sunday, claiming he was being followed. Bah told officers a vehicle started following him on South Rutherford Blvd. and continued on I-24 at 5:46 a.m. He also said he was being shot at, so he shot back.

Officers were also flagged down at a gas station on John Rice Blvd. by passersby who said a man was shooting a gun from his car. That man was later identified as Bah.

One victim told police his vehicle had been shot multiple times while driving around South Rutherford Blvd. and I-24. The car was hit by multiple bullets and one of its tires was flattened. The driver of that vehicle was not injured.

When officers investigated Bah's vehicle, there were two bullet holes in it and the driver's side window was shattered. They also learned the handgun Bah had was reported stolen out of Texas.

The next day, another victim visited Murfreesboro police headquarters to report someone shot multiple times at his vehicle as he was driving in the same area. The victim said he tried to pass a slow-moving vehicle when that driver sped up. Once they were on I-24, the victim said the driver started to shoot at him, causing bullets to ricochet under his vehicle. That driver also managed to escape injury.

Bah was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment and possession of stolen property. Additional charges are still pending.
