Officers were called to the Hillvale Apartments in the 3400 block of Hamilton around 11:40 p.m. last night where the security guard was apparently struck by a vehicle.

Initially, police were told a car full of people drove through the complex, shooting some type of fireworks from the moving vehicle. The victim was struck by the car while trying to intervene.

The vehicle continued driving, but police confirm at least one person was taken into custody following the incident. No other information is available.
