They come from across the Dumbarton Bridge. Everybody knows that; except for Police and media that is. All they would have to do is look at camera footage from the bridge, just after the shooting.

The suspect vehicle "may have sustained gunshots"? How? Was the "victim" shooting back? Were his "friends" shooting back?

Raymond, thanks for the tip, but I don't see how you can claim "everybody knows that". Perhaps everybody within your small circle of friends, but there is a bigger meaning for "everybody" that tends to include the rest of the world. If everybody, truly everybody knew something, then the police would know it too because they would be included in the "everybody".

even if the cops would look at the cameras over the DB bride they wouldnt be able to see much because its the camera.. its too far out. but if the person shooting back at the car comes out and says you knoe what i know who did it and tells the cops as an anonymouse person maybe justice will be the outcome its scarry because at that time kids get dropped of by the bus and walk home its sad its in our neighborhood but sadly its reality, but yet rent here is soo ridiculsly high, so we can live in a dangerous area.
