Amy Davis says: "It just scared me to death. I still have chill bumps."

Davis is still reeling from an incident that happened over the weekend.

Davis says: "We went to the stop sign right at the end of Gary as we turned left onto Holly I heard this pish sound."

Although police say it's extremely rare, it appears someone had shot at Davis's vehicle while she was driving down the road.

Lieutenant Colonel Doug Hawkins, with the Bowling Green Police Department, says: "The police responded and determined that her window had been damaged by what appeared to have been a BB gun."

Davis's nine year-old-daughter was sitting in the passenger side of the van. Saturday afternoon's storm blew glass into the vehicle spraying mother and daughter.

Davis says: "There was glass flying everywhere. I told her to duck!"

Davis's leg was cut by some of the glass but neither she or her daughter were seriously hurt. Still, Lieutenant Colonel Hawkins says even though the vehicle was not seriously damaged as a result of the initial BB gun shot, there could have been secondary problems.

Hawkins says: "The issue is not how much damage can done to the vehicle, but the response from the driver that can be caused by the damage to the vehicle."

Davis says because of the shooting her daughter is scared to ride in the van. Now she wants to see the people who shot out her window and frightened she and her daughter caught.

Davis says: "They need to get these people off the streets. This is ridiculous."

Police say they are investigating if this shooting is related to recent vandalism of vehicles at local car dealerships. They say there are similarities in the cases. If you have any information on the persons responsible you can call the Bowling Green Police Department at 393-4000 or Crime Stoppers at 781-CLUE.
