Dickinson Police searching for gunman who shot moving car

- A proverbial shot in the dark. That's what Amber Johnson says hit her car as she was driving Saturday night.

"I heard it and I felt a warmness on my side, and luckily I didn't feel pain. I was shocked. And I was thankful my kids weren't with me. I was terrified," she said.

She didn't dare stop. Johnson continued driving south on Nicholas Street until she got to a better lit area near Berry Field.

That's when she saw the window had shattered and there was a hole about shoulder height.

A bullet hole? A pellet gun hole? She wasn't sticking around to find out.

Johnson drove to a nearby relative's home and called the police. She also posted it on social media. It would prove to be her second shock.

"I found out two weeks ago it happened to someone else," she said. "I found out another lady heard it."

It wasn't just another lady. Another neighbor, who didn't want his name used, did too.

"I heard like five or six gunshots and I was like, 'Is that a gun? It doesn't sound like fireworks.' It sounded like a gun," he said. 

Dickinson Police swarmed the area looking for the possible shooter and warned others of the possible danger. It's not clear if it was a child or an adult.

Either way, Johnson is stuck with frazzled nerves and a repair bill.

"If it is an adult doing this, and you see this on camera, maybe you will know that this is affecting people mentally, physically and financially. So hopefully they'll quit," she said.

In the meantime, she won't drive down that street until the shooter gets caught.
