East Ridge man injured in drive-by shooting

An East Ridge man was injured in a drive-by shooting Sunday night in the 1300 block of Altamaha. 

Brad Weir, 47, said he was in the backyard with his dog when he noticed a dark colored four-door sedan drive past his house, circle the block, and drive by his house again before stopping at the entrance to his driveway. 

Weir sent his dog inside and approached the car. The front passenger window rolled down and Weir, who believes he saw two people in the car wearing dark colored long sleeve clothing, asked, "Can I help, you?" 

Weir was then shot in the leg, as the suspect fled the scene. He was transported to a local hospital and his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. 

The investigation is ongoing.
