Cyclist shot with BB gun on MLK Bridge

WTVR is reporting:

She recalled a Civic pulled up directly behind her – almost too close. A dark red SUV with a sunroof was to her left, both were playing music and “seemed to be grooving with each other.”

“I felt this sharp sting go into my spine, and I turned around and I’m like ‘what the heck just happened?’ Ledford said. “I’m looking at them like I’m really mad, because I knew someone had done something.”

Folks that think this kind of thing is funny should probably be careful – I know more than a few people that carry more than just a BB gun, even when they are riding bicycles. Not advocating for anyone shooting anything at anyone else, just to be clear. But that just seems like something that could escalate really quickly.
