Sadly, the fact that somebody got shot in the middle of the day today is not nearly as shocking as it should be. What was odd about the story, though, was that the assailants apparently used a Prius, first to ram their victim, then to drive away after they shot him for good measure.
Turns out there's a whole seamy underworld of criminals in Prii:
- Prius used as getaway car after armed robbery
- Bank robbery makes getaway in Prius
- Suspect flees bank robbery in a Prius
- Bank robber flees in Prius, dies when he crashes into tree
So next time you see a Prius coming up behind you - get out of the way:
