BB Shooting Terrifies 5 Women

"Well, we're were totally terrified," said Ginny Oliver.

At 2 in the afternoon, Oliver was calling it a day. "Somebody shot at me, I'm just thankful that I'm alive," she said.

Northbound on Indiana, taking four of her employees to a house cleaning job when the driver's side window suddenly splinters. "Everybody was looking around to see if we were bleeding," she said. No one was.

When police showed up, they told Oliver that it was no accident. "I asked him could it be gravel, because there is gravel on Indiana, and he said 'No mam, it was a BB," she said.

A frightening experience in itself, terrifying in the context of the past four days, with two police cruisers shot, and the death of motorcyclist Russell Baldree under investigation after he too was shot. "With all the shooting going on, it's just totally terrified us," she said.

If the bb shooter is apprehended, the offender could face up to a year in jail or a fine of up to $4,000.
