WOW, was it a real gun or a BB gun?
This is a discussion on Car Window Shoot Out within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; I had to fill in for a coworker today so he could go get the rear passenger window replaced after someone came up beside him ...
I had to fill in for a coworker today so he could go get the rear passenger window replaced after someone came up beside him in another car and shot.
He was driving near the mall (for those of you that live in the Colonial Heights area, it was Southpark Mall).
As you might expect he was still rattled today.
He said it took the police 30 mins to respond.
He said it sounded like a 9mm.
That sounds about right for Colonial heights.
I'm glad your friend wasn't hurt. I doubt anything but situational awareness and some defensive driving (keeping other cars out of your blind spot or beside you) could have prevented this.

Not a big mall person myself. Never liked Southpark Mall, and if I could I would not even drive by it. Driving through Hopewell to get to Ft Lee isn't much better.
In the early 1990s, my wife & daughter were in the Walmart in Colonial Hgts. when a man came in an killed his girlfriend.
Colonial Hgts. hasn't been very safe in decades....

Different case, but same lunacy:
"Grimes County Sheriff Don Sowell said drive-by shootings were unheard of in the area." But, some idiot teen shot at a house with a 9mm, multiple shots, and killed an innocent person. He was gunning for someone else over a drug deal gone bad. BG teen now in custody and will no doubt face murder one. IDIOTS.
Did you find the bullet?

I'm at or near that mall several times a month. Just one more reason to carry.
I asked him today if he found a bullet and he said that he has not.
