When police arrived, a man suspected of having the gun began to run. Police chased him on Dix Avenue to McBride Street, where the unknown gunman threw away his .38- caliber handgun and disappeared in local backyards. The gun was recovered in the yard of the house to the right of the photo, 13-56 McBride Street. Police are still looking for the man who had the gun.
