I have to admit, there were

I have to admit, there were times when I wanted to shoot my car, but it was all I had at the time and refrained from committing "carcide".

Seriously though, it was a lucky thing someone was not sitting in the car or it would have been worse. Whatever in the world gives someone the mindset to do something like this is beyond my scope of reasoning.

"Officers recovered bullet

"Officers recovered bullet casings"

You mean officers actually responded? My car and my house got shot and they did not even bother to show up when I called. I must be in the wrong "sheriff's district" or something. Of course, my tax dollars never show up in my district either so why would I expect anything different from the sheriff's department.
