A Swan Street man faces assault charges after police said he tried to shoot a woman three times on Saturday in the Old First Ward.

Umar R. Graham tried to shoot a woman three times in the Big Basha Mini Mart on South Park Avenue at Louisiana Street, police said.

Lucky for the woman, the gun misfired all three times, store videos show, and Graham was arrested by officers later that day on Jefferson Avenue. He was charged with assault.
