The victim stated that he had just left his residence and was driving down the road when someone from another vehicle fired several bullets at his vehicle. The suspect vehicle, unknown description, then fled. Upon examining the victim vehicle, several bullet holes were located. Several bullet casings were also discovered at the scene of the shooting.
