The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating after a driver shot a bullet at another car on the west side.
The victim said her car was targeted at random, and now police are asking for the public’s help in locating the shooter.
“It scared the hell out of me,” said Boswell.
Boswell went to a Speedway gas station near her cousin’s house to pick up some drinks around 10 p.m. Thursday. On her way back, she said she ran into trouble.
“He kept brake checking,” said Boswell. “I’m like what is this guy doing. Then he pulled over to the side and I try to go around him and he just starts firing a gun.”
There are tire marks in the road from her peeling away where she said the shooting happened.
“I don’t know who the guy was,” said Boswell. “I’ve never seen him. I got a good look at him last night.”
Sgt. Linda Jackson with IMPD said Boswell was able to provide a good description of the suspect.
“She did provide a very good description of the driver. Complete saying he was a white male 25-29, light brown hair but not a crew cut,” said Sgt Jackson. “She described the shirt he was wearing. She gave a very thorough description of the vehicle. It was brown or dark blue and [it] had a red stripe across the back of it.”
When officers came out to take Boswell’s statement, Sgt. Jackson said they found more evidence.
“When they did go back to the scene, they located some shell casings at the scene from possibly a .380 semi-automatic,” said Sgt. Jackson. “Those were recovered and placed into the property room.”
Boswell said she does not understand why someone would randomly shoot at someone they do not know.
“I’ve never had a problem in this neighborhood,” said Boswell. “Never just anybody shooting at somebody for no reason.”
Boswell said now she is worried because she drives a very distinctive car and usually has her two small kids in it with her.
“What if I’m driving down the road and I’ve got my kids in the car and I see him, what am I supposed to do?” asked Boswell.
