The uptick of shootings on 400-series highways should urge @fordnation’s government to take @patrickbrownont’s calls for the installation of CCTV cameras seriously. Important for solving these types of crimes but also for investigating accidents and other highway problems.— શૈલેંદ્ર (@aylenshay) December 9, 2019
All three people in the car were shot, though the driver was still capable of getting to the gas station.
Det. Sgt. Brandon Price of TPSO Operations Homicide said one person was shot in the back and another was shot in the calf, but both were released from hospital later that evening.
