    Car Window Shoot Out

    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.

    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.

    I'm at or near that mall several times a month. Just one more reason to carry.

    You can't be serious?????? Just had a case in NE that some "good boys" used a BB gun and shot out $25,000.00 worth car and business windows.

    Wrong, in fact you would not believe how easy it is. If you ever have a junk vehicle at your disposal try taking a spring loaded ***** punch and using it in the corner of a window. A thousand pieces later and you will see for yourself. Most firefighters and EMS carry them for auto accidents to get in the vehicle.
