According to FOX 9, the shots rang out around 8:15 a.m. along Thomas Avenue North, near North 14th Avenue, disrupting the quiet of the waking neighborhood.

Authorities said that the man, in his 40s, along with a woman and their dog, were inside the vehicle when someone approached, firing shots after opening the door.
