(KMOV) -- A St. Louis man is in jail after police say he shot at good Samaritans who were trying to stop him from assaulting a woman.
Police said the incident happened at the intersection of Riverview Blvd. and Thekla Ave. in north St. Louis.
According to court documents, Terence Wright, 21, was assaulting a woman at the intersection. A woman and her two children traveling in their car saw the assault and stopped along with the woman’s sister and her two children in a separate car.
Wright yelled at the two women, but the women stayed to try and help. Then Wright allegedly got out a gun and shot six times at the women and their children. No one was hit.
“Someone is out here trying to save a life and you turn on that person, you are cold,” said Usseni Hayes, a St. Louis resident. “Where is your heart, where is your sympathy and compassion.”
Police said after firing the shots, Wright ran to a nearby apartment complex. Police located him there and when officers attempted to arrest him, Wright threw a punch at one of the officers.
Wright is in jail and held on a $200,000 cash bond.
