There was a black Chrysler 300 sitting in the middle lane,” the witness said. “There was another little black car in the right lane with his hazard lights blinking. Nothing was wrong. We go through the light, pull up on Sweeny, light was green, go through the light, soon as we get through the light by the airport the Chrysler 300 rolled his side window down and just opened up on this guy, shot maybe seven rounds. The guy pulled over almost hit a pole. The 300 kept going.”
