Victoria police are asking for the public’s help locating a man after a firearm was discharged outside a business.

Police say the suspect attempted to enter a closed business in the 1900-block of Foul Bay Road just before 11 p.m. Thursday (Dec. 15).

According to VicPD, the man banged on the door, fired what appeared to be a handgun into the air and then left the area on foot.

Investigators aren’t sure if the gun was a replica, a pellet gun or an actual firearm.

He was wearing a navy blue T-shirt, black pants, grey and blue sneakers and a T-shirt around his head.
