He allegedly fired at teen who failed to find them some pot
A Hazel Dell man, 19, is accused of shooting at the feet of another teen during a Jan. 26 marijuana run.
A man whom witnesses said was dressed “like a ninja” attempted to rob a bar in the Minnehaha neighborhood just before midnight today, Vancouver Police Department Spokeswoman Kim Kapp said.
Hazel Dell -- Nine-year-old Austin Frazier is the man. You are the man -- or woman -- too, according to the spirit of Austin's new music video, which is up on YouTube. The video, directed by family friend Damon Deacco Fontleroy, starts off with Frazier working through some impressive classical piano before he starts rapping about all things positive -- friendship, swimming in the pool, break dancing and exploring the library. Austin wrote the words and does the rapping and dancing in the video while his cousin Macauley Brown, 21, provided the beats. Austin, his video and his piano-teaching grandmother, Colleen Tolva, recently appeared in a spot on KGW-TV -- where Colleen confessed she's looking forward to Austin growing out of rap and getting back into classical. "He's got fast, flexible fingers," she said.
Two vehicles parked at the Greentree Apartments in northeast Hazel Dell were damaged by gunshots overnight Friday.
