AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) – The Potter County Sheriff’s Office asked the community for information after a man was hospitalized after an early Tuesday morning shooting in Northwest Amarillo.
According to the Potter County Sheriff’s Office, officials responded to a call just after 3:45 a.m. on Tuesday about a black Dodge Charger with black wheels and dark tint that was allegedly trespassing at a home on the 8200 block of Cliffside Drive.
When the property owner approached the Dodge Charger to learn the license plate number, according to the sheriff’s office, the Dodge Charger drove off and went eastbound on Cliffside Drive.
