Police in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, say a male suspect who shot at a police cruiser ran off like a "scared little child" when the officer turned around.
The incident happened Wednesday morning on Mendon Street, according to a Facebook post from Uxbridge police.
The suspect shot at the cruiser with what was believed to be an air-powered rifle or a pistol. The shot did not hit the cruiser and police say it was probably because the suspect was holding the gun sideways.
