Semmes Man Shoots At Teens Who Rolled His House

Posted by David Merrell On September - 25 - 2012

    A traditional high school prank went horribly wrong in Semmes. After having his house rolled in toilet paper, Mark Raiford chased the teens to their car. He then opened fire on their car as they pulled away. Raiford followed the teenagers to a nearby gas station, where he held them at gunpoint until police arrived.

    Raiford, who is the public works supervisor for the city of Semmes, was arrested. He is charged with shooting into an occupied vehicle, a felony. There were five kids in the vehicle when the 39 year old opened fire. Luckily, no one was injured.

    Mobile County Sheriff Sam Cochran told the Mobile Press-Register that the incident proves how dangerous pranks like this can be. He also said that Raiford’s actions were a severe overreaction. Raiford’s court date has been set for October 10th. He could face up to 20 years in prison.
