Traffic Violation turned Attempted Murder
A traffic stop which almost turned into a murder.
A man is in custody after hailing police deputies with bullets from an AK 47.
Victor Walker, 22, drove away from deputies in Marion County Monday in his grey Nissan, and proceeded to shoot at officers with an AK 47 from his vehicle shortly there after.
He was pulled over initially for a traffic violation, but then drove away after the police pulled him over.
The car stopped frequently as Walker appeared to be fidgeting with something in the front seat.
On one of his stops he let out three passengers including a 5-month-old baby.
Deputy Matthew Nasworth was able to duck down in his vehicle as Walker shot at his car, and managed to fire back once.
Nasworth was treated with facial cuts as a result of the broken glass.
After driving once more, Walker was arrested after he left the car and tried to run away.
