Teen with hearing aid called a “Disabled Freak” and threatened at gunpoint

A Murfreesboro teenager with a specialized implanted hearing aid was verbally assaulted and threatened at gun point on Tuesday morning.

The 18-year-old told police that he was walking down Minerva Drive when a small Kia Soul pulled up next to him and the passenger stated, "I'm gonna' kill you, you disabled freak!" The threat was made while the subject in the car was reportedly holding what appeared to be a black semi-automatic handgun.

After the threat was made, the vehicle sped away as the victim stood in silence watching. The car turned onto Cypress Drive headed towards Rogers Park, according to the victim.

Police canvassed the area, but could not locate the Kia that was a yellow color.
