SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police have arrested a man accused of nearly running down a pedestrian and then shooting him when he objected.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1sYYfE2) prosecutors on Thursday charged 25-year-old Easy Chang with attempted murder and assault with a firearm.

Police say the 37-year-old victim was in a crosswalk in the Western Addition neighborhood last August when Chang drove past him without yielding, almost hitting him.

Police say after the victim yelled at him, Chang stopped at a driveway and shot back at the man. Chang then allegedly drove back and shot the pedestrian again before driving off.

The victim sustained life-threatening injuries but survived.

Chang was arrested after police executed a search warrant on his home and car earlier this week.
