The victim reported that this terrified her, and she began to drive away. She then reported that the suspect began to chase her. The victim was able to get away and called 911. At the time this call was reported to 911, another caller reported a shooting incident two blocks away. Both calls were near an elementary school which prompted the school staff to go into immediate lockdown just prior to releasing students for the day.
