Mug Shot of the Week from Tempe PD: 21-Year-Old Sean Sexton
This is the pouting face of 21-year-old Sean Sexton. Tempe police say Sexton was standing outside of a check-cashing store near Southern and Mill avenues October 28 firing an Airsoft rifle at the store's windows.
Police are unsure why exactly Sexton was shooting at the store but speculate that he may have had a vendetta against the business.
When police got to the scene, Sexton started firing at them, as well.
Luckily, the responding officers realized Sexton was firing an air rifle and didn't return fire, so nobody was injured.
