Shooting at Dallas food mart over who could sell marijuana

A man who previously served jail time for setting a dog on fire shot another man last month over an argument about who could sell marijuana at a Dallas food mart.

Adrian Ayers, 23, was booked into the Dallas County Jail, charged with aggravated assault. His bail was set at $100,000.

Ayers, whose nickname is Ohio, was arguing with another man in the parking lot of the Adams Food Mart on Bruton Road, police documents say. The other man said he challenged Ohio to a fistfight over who would sell marijuana there.

That’s when Ohio pulled out a handgun and shot the other man in the chest, police said. The victim ran away, with the suspect in pursuit, but told police the gun jammed when he tried to fire again.

Ayers, who is a member of the Bloods street gang, plead guilty along with three others for animal cruelty after one of them doused a 4-month-old lab terrier with lighter fluid while another flicked a cigarette on the dog back in 2012.

Ayers was sentenced to two years in jail, and served time at the Hutchins State Jail.
