Two trucks that were traveling on Interstate 77 in downtown Charlotte, NC, early Monday were hit by shots fired by someone in passing cars.

According to the Charlotte Observer, neither trucker was hurt, but the driver’s side window was shattered on one of the rigs.

One trucker said shots were fired from a white Toyota with four people inside. The other driver said he was fired on from a small brown car with three occupants.
