Shots were fired after three men followed a man hunting in the Tusayan area on Tuesday evening, according to a media release from the Coconino County Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff deputies reported that a bowhunter was harassed in the area of Forest Road 328. The hunter was approached by three white males in a dark truck. The men confronted the hunter and began asking what his problem was, and an argument pursued, according to the release. The hunter walked away from the truck and went down a side road. The men followed the hunter in their truck, and the hunter ran away and hid in an embankment. Not long after, six to eight gunshots sounded off from the truck.

The sheriff's office was unable to locate the truck nor its occupants and is asking for the public's help in identifying a dark, full-sized truck with a diesel engine, possibly a Chevrolet. The truck has four doors or an extended cab with a dark camper shell with a rack on top. The truck has an LED light bar on its cab, and possibly has a burnt out fog light on the front.
Any additional witnesses or those with information on the truck or its occupants should contact the sheriff's office at 928-774-4523, option 1 or Silent Witness at 928-774-6111.
