** A Phoenix, Arizona man was charged Sunday with several different felonies after allegedly firing into an ambulance with four people on-board. CBS 5 (January 31) said Leroy Scott, 25, has been tagged with aggravated assault, discharging a weapon within city limits, aggravated assault on police, and resisting arrest. According to the news station, Scott fired at the ambulance around 3 a.m. before making off in a car and then fleeing into a local convenience store. He then brandished his weapon and robbed the cash register. When police arrived on-scene, a scuffle erupted with the suspect eventually being tasered. The three officers involved in the melee sustained cuts and bruises, but were otherwise alright. The ambulance occupants, meanwhile, also escaped injury. There is no word on why Scott targeted the ambulance or when his next court date is.
