ROCKDALE COUNTY, Ga. - A woman who witnessed a drive-by shooting in Conyers told Channel 2's Liz Artz it was like watching a movie.

She said she couldn't believe how calmly the suspect shot out the rear window of a car and then walked into the store like nothing happened.

She said the man fired at least four rounds into the back of the car.  She told Artz she doesn't know how the driver was not hit by a bullet, but said the person sped away.

The witness said it was 6 p.m. when she and her two sons stopped by the Chevron store on Sigman Road on the way to ball practice.

She said her 13-year-old was inside paying for gas, when the man calmly stuck the gun in his pocket and walked into the convenience store.

She said, "My most precious gift ever is in that store, and I couldn't get to him."

Police identified the shooter as 26-year-old Daniel Peter Passee.

The store clerk said Passee used to be a regular at the store, but he moved from the area.

Police said Passee purchased a drink and then waited for someone to come pick him up.

Witnesses said someone driving a dark-colored late ‘90s-model Acura picked him up a short time later.

Police think Passee lives in the Stone Mountain area.  They want you to call Conyers police or CrimeStoppers if you see him.
