A Portsmouth (VA) Firefighter, called to a neighborhood for a fallen-wires run, tried to break up a fistfight between two men who had a long history of not getting along. But one of the neighbors pulled a gun and opened fire — and the Firefighter took a bullet to the elbow.
The Firefighter was released from Sentara Norfolk General Hospital at 0200 hoursTuesday. A 44-year-old man was arrested Tuesday, charged with shooting the Firefighter and another man. His preliminary hearing is slated for Aug. 6.
