22. I was riding my bike on a back road through the woods when a vehicle pulled up next to me and a woman started yelling at me that I didn’t belong on the road then ran me off the road. It was a half mile to a place I could safely hide, I road faster than I ever had… She missed me 4 more times. When it started I turned on the video on my phone and put it back in my pocket. Between the audio and some boy scouts who witnessed it they had enough to convict her of attempted manslaughter.
23. Not me but my friend’s mother survived an attempted murder-suicide. She had a stalker who came into her workplace with a revolver and shot her in the back as she was bending over, not paying attention. He then shot himself. She lived, and she’s fine (except for the PTSD), but my friend was very close to not even being born because of that idiot.
24. Drive by shooting in a neighborhood where all the houses look similar. Intended target lived two doors down in a house with the same layout. Men driving by shot at my bedroom window. One bullet went through the window, ricocheted off the wall, and hit me in the forehead while I was asleep in bed. Woke up to the most horrific pain imaginable and never lost consciousness until I was put under for the surgery. I still have some bullet fragments in my skull that were too dangerous to remove.
Shooters were never caught because the guy living down the street “ain’t no snitch.” June 20th of this year was the 10 year anniversary of the shooting.
