A man reported to the State Patrol that his car was hit by gunfire as two drivers engaged in road rage while travelling on I-5 between Everett and Marysville Saturday afternoon. Trooper Keith Leary says the man called troopers around 1pm and said he found a bullet hole in his car after he saw a black Mercedes and another car mixing it up on I-5. Leary says the man told troopers he was driving northbound watching the cars ahead of him when he thought he got a flat tire. He pulled off the freeway and found a bullet hole right behind the driver’s door. The man then called 9-1-1 and met troopers in Marysville showing them the damage. Troopers conducted a search but did not locate the cars involved.

    I believe it! I was driving very early Friday morning about 12:30 going north on Broadway and some kids (at least I hope they were kids, adults wouldn’t have an excuse for this) leaned out the window of their car and threw eggs at my car! I didnt realize it until the next day when I went outside to see dried egg on my car. Appears crime is getting a lot worse in the area. I’m scared to even walk alone anymore.
