MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A grandfather is behind bars after being charged with firing several rounds at a car where his one-year-old granddaughter was sleeping.
Ozzir Hobbs, 53, is being accused of the crime.
Police say the incident began when Hobbs made his 22-year-old stepson move out of his residence on the 2700 block of Breezy Ridge Trail on Saturday.
According to the affidavit, when the stepson returned to the home to get his belongings, a fight broke out between him and Hobbs.
As the stepson was leaving with his 1-year-old daughter, police say Hobbs fired several shots at them, striking the vehicle.
“I feel that he should not be allowed to walk the streets. He is dangerous if you can shoot like that in a community,” said the victim’s mother, who is also Hobb’s wife.
Three bullets were lodged into the driver side door and the fourth bullet hit the back door where the 1-year-old was sleeping.
No injuries were reported during the shooting.
When the wife returned home, police said Hobbs ran her over twice on an ATV.
“I was screaming and yelling for help,” that woman said. “I do not ever want to see him, besides in court.”
In the police report we obtained, Ozzie Hobbs is alleging self-defense. But according to the woman we spoke with, surveillance cameras from a neighbor contradict his claim.
Hobbs was charged with two counts of attempted second-degree murder and assault
Hobbs is behind bars on a $175,000 bond.
