Someone's shooting at us!
So far, this activity is confined to the Grandview Triangle area and Lee's Summit, Blue Springs and Leewood, but that's still close enough to worry me. I have a colleague who travels this route when she comes in for her part-time work every month.
So far, one man has been shot in the calf. It seems that the shooter/s is/are more interested in just shooting cars than in actually hitting people, but one woman went to get her 3-year-old daughter out of the car and discovered a bullet hole through the window ... just about 2" from the little girl's face. So, it was nearly a tragedy.
People really are going nuts these days.
Oh, and I have no explanation for the poor quality of the editing. Suffice it to say, I've been noticing that nothing that purports to be professional news is actually well proofed these days.
I suspect a male,(males), late teens early twenties, just firing a handgun at random cars. I do not believe this is as sinister of intent as the DC snipers more than a decade ago. Still very dangerous, and scary. I hope they figure this out soon.

I would have to agree with your assessment. And I don't think someone is doing this as a prank or gang bet/initiation.
Once, evil prank. Twice maybe still. Anything more than that means he is out to get a kill or cause a wreck that might. It's frightening because during rush hour it's a slow crawl through the Grandview Triangle. People are sitting ducks and there are plenty of escape routes. Lots of motocross and four wheel paths all over the area, not to mention pretty quiet side streets.
But honestly I'm more worried about when the LEO's start closing in on him... The area is only minutes from apartments, schools and shopping in any direction, even on foot.
I hope they can catch him w/o out any incident because clearly he has no regard for innocent bystanders.
