It always astounds me when people dismiss the danger of a shooting by saying it was targeted, or "Don't worry, they weren't shooting at YOU." What if the shooter missed? We don't know anything about their skill with a gun, or lack thereof. In a crowded city intersection, near a school no less, those bullets could have hit anyone.

Bullets do not discriminate and will hit anything in their way. But I can see where people are coming from. If this person was a non-felon, outstanding citizen the chances of him getting targeted would have been very minimal. You reap what you sow.

I was looking for more information on this and apparently there was some sort of chase between the two cars. Eventually the black pickup/suv blocked the other vehicle somehow before the shooting. The police have released some of the 911 calls and they're on local news sites.

Still, there is very little information about this going on two weeks. I would think the investigation should be producing some leads by now. There's surprisingly little information.

It's pretty weird that there has been no other info released about this case.
