Art sends us the story and the above picture from an incident that happened on South Highway 85 in California when a recruiter was out driving and his government car was struck by bullets. From a local ABC News station;
A close-up look at his vehicle shows three bullet holes in the left rear passenger side of the government issued Pontiac, along with two shattered windows. Sheriff’s investigators are not sure if the shooter was in an adjacent lane or possibly in the opposite lanes of the busy freeway.
It was in the parking lot that the victim called 911 to report the shooting. This triggered a massive response by the California Highway Patrol and the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office. The southbound lanes of Highway 85 were immediately shut down while a phalanx of deputies combed the three lanes and shoulders for cases from the bullets.
The report says that it’s unlikely that someone shot at him because he’s a Marine, but you have to wonder why him out of all of the vehicles on any highway in California. It could have been the government plates that triggered the incident.
