“Me and my husband were unfortunately caught in the crossfire today at the gas station,” noted one witness on Nextdoor who reported that the suspects were shooting at the car in front of them. “Wrong place at the wrong time and had our back window shot out while I sat in the passenger seat and my husband pumped gas.”
