At that time, a Trailblazer with five people inside pulled behind the Lincoln and saw the shooting.
“The offenders then turned their guns on the Trailblazer and fired several shots into the Trailblazer,” the release states.
A 16-year-old girl, who was inside the Trailblazer, was hit in the shoulders as the driver tried to escape. She went to The Medical Center, where she was treated and released, authorities said.
