The victim’s vehicle was struck by gunfire; however, the victim was not injured.

  1. Unfortunately road rage in this case has gone to extremes. I hope they catch the perpetrator before he hurts or kills someone. This type of behavior can happen anywhere and at anytime. Drivers need to keep aware of their surroundings at all times and refrain from setting off other drivers. Folks are nuts and just plain crazy. Unfortunately we are a big target and they are (luckily for us) lousy shots.
