The rear window of a Smart Car was shot and shattered as a woman drove on the 605 Freeway near Downey around 7 p.m. Monday night. According to KTLA, Barbara Henry says she was approaching Florence Ave. when she heard four shots, "I heard four pops and I thought what the heck. And I looked around and people were swerving and I thought, what are they swerving about?" Henry exited the freeway and pulled into the Norwalk sheriff's station for help. Investigators determined the weapon used was most likely a pellet gun.
