NORTH AVONDALE, OH (FOX19) -

A Cincinnati police sergeant is being credited for quickly apprehending a gunman who fired shots and tried to run off.

Sgt. Mike Reynolds ran down the suspect "like a deer" just before 1 a.m. Tuesday outside the Shell gas station on West Mitchell Avenue off Interstate 75, said Lt. Tim Brown, the night chief.

Police responded to the area after a man carried out his frustrations by firing his 9 mm handgun, he said.

No one was hurt.

Reynolds spied the man and ordered him to come talk to him, but the man threw his gun and ran off, Brown said.

The suspect, Marcus Canada, 28, of Avondale was taken into custody after a brief foot chase.

He is held without bond at the Hamilton County jail on several charges: discharging a firearm in city limits, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, illegally having a weapon, possession of a defaced weapon, tampering with evidence and obstructing official business.

Canada faces a judge Tuesday morning.
