A woman and her daughter were driving through the intersection at 15th and Market on Tuesday night when a man in a ski mask pointed a gun at them, according to a police report.
Police responded just after 9 p.m., but were unable to find the suspect. No one was injured.
The man was on foot walking eastbound in the crosswalk against the light when he “raised his right hand which was holding a pistol and deliberately pointed it” at the victims, the report said.
The woman told police she feared for her life. Her daughter gave police the same account. They told officers the man had a thin build, wore a black ski mask, “did not appear to be a homeless person” and was not carrying any bags or backpacks.
