The father estimated the suspect fired five shots before he pulled away and drove to the fire station, according to the incident report. Three 9mm shell casings were recovered at the scene.
Police spent much of Wednesday searching for the Kia and investigating at the barbershop, according to Hampton. The police activity shut down the road near Chapel Street and caused backups just north of I-20.
Police did not release any details about what they believe may have been the motive to target the vehicle.
