Shotgun shooting at 2nd and Broad

I heard talk about this story Thursday evening, and here is the report. There was a shooting on N. 2nd St., near Broad St.
Officers were dispatched to the area of North 2nd and Broad streets for reports of shots fired. Witnesses said they observed a man firing at a dark-colored vehicle. The driver fled, taking the car southbound on Route 47.
The gunman reportedly fled on foot in an unknown direction.
Police at the scene of the shooting were later greeted by the driver of the vehicle, who said he was stopped at the intersection of 2nd and Broad streets when his car was struck by gun fire.
According to police, the vehicle appeared to have been hit with a single shotgun blast.
At present it appears the driver was an "innocent victim".  If so, this would be a peculiar turn, as almost all shootings involve parties that are known to each other.

That area is fast becoming a hot spot in town. The 500 block of North 2nd is a haven of shady activity. Tons of pedestrian traffic, hand-offs, and at least 2 or 3 rental homes that act as a staging area for nuisance activity daily.
