At 9:06 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 7, 2019, Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a 911 call reporting a shooting in the Winco parking lot at 11250 S.E. 82nd Ave.

Upon arrival, deputies found an Acura with a single bullet hole in the hood. However, an eyewitness indicated that two rounds were fired. There were no injuries.

Forensic experts have determined that the bullet struck the victim's vehicle near the front headlight and missed the victim -- who was loading groceries through a car door at the time -- by inches.

The victim does not know the suspect, and a motive for the shooting is unknown at this writing.

A red late-model sedan was identified as the suspect vehicle in the incident, and deputies have secured a surveillance photo of the suspect vehicle (pictured).
