A literal miracle took place in Crown Heights Friday afternoon when a Jewish vehicle with children inside was accidentally targeted in a shooting on Remsen Ave.
The Jewish family, who lives nearby, had been driving their family minivan northbound on Remsen Ave around 5:00pm Friday afternoon when four gunshots rang out directly behind them.
Video from the shooting shows as the minivan immediately swerves into a homes parking spot as what appears to be a blue SUV slows down behind them.
The driver of the vehicle told CrownHeights.info that one of the first gunshots struck his vehicle and plastic debris were ricocheting around inside.
Pictures from the car showed that the bullet had struck the rear tailgate of the van, penetrating the outer shell and punching a hole out into the car. The bullet then broke through a portion of the interior plastic siding, spraying the debris inside the vehicle.
Miraculously, none of the vehicles occupants were injured, and the blue SUV pulled off to shoot at another vehicle further down the road.
Police were called and are investigating the incident.
