On October 25, 2020, at 8:10 pm, 35-year-old Christina Perry and her 13-year-old son were traveling eastbound on Livingston Ave. and turned southbound onto Studer Ave. A few seconds later, a vehicle traveling westbound on Livingston Ave. also turned southbound onto Studer Ave. and drove up right behind Perry’s vehicle. The person driving this vehicle apparently became impatient with the way Perry was driving & started shooting at her vehicle striking it several times in the bumper & trunk area.

She was able to get the vehicle stopped a short distance later.
