“It was really, like, loud. Big popping noises. Very quick. Very, very quick. The guy was just going off really fast. So I actually thought it was my engine popping. So I was worried that my car was going to explode. I look forward, I see guys hopping out of car, like stuff going on, and pops and lights and stuff,” the witness said.
Police said Green had non-life-threatening injuries. He has since been released from the hospital.
Investigators are still searching for the shooter in the other car. We are still working to learn why Green was targeted.
