Four people were shot at while driving on Deans Bridge Road on Monday afternoon, police said.

Three men and a woman told police they were driving southbound in the left lane when a man pulled up next to them, also going southbound, flashing a wad of cash, a Richmond County sheriff’s report says.

He pointed a small-caliber black or blue handgun at them and fired one shot into the car, striking the door just below the window molding.

No one was hurt. The gunman was driving a red, late 1990s Pontiac Sunfire with a faded roof, the report says.

No surprise there for anyone
Unpublished

No surprise there for anyone who has been on that road. Went to that walmart one time and realized by the characters around me that is was definitely the gangster part of town. Where is the clean up crew for that area?

What did the shooter look

What did the shooter look like? Maybe he flashed the money to get their attention therefore get them to look at him. Easier targets when facing him.
