Cuyahoga Falls Police are investigating a worker shot by an apparent air rifle behind a Howe Avenue business.

A worker was struck by an object fired by at him while on break in Cuyahoga Falls.

Police are investigating the incident reported around 3 p.m. Tuesday.

The victim was hit but not seriously injured.

Police say they have a possible suspect who faces assault charges.

Law enforcement officials have raised concerns about assaults by so-called air rifles fired from cars at pedestrians and strangers.

A fight over a similar incident led to the beating death of an Akron teen earlier this summer.
