— Two vehicles were struck by gunfire in the area of Rock Quarry and Cross Link roads at about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday, Raleigh police said.

According to police, one of the drivers had her two-year-old daughter in the backseat of her car.

The drivers, not realizing their vehicles were hit, kept driving to their destinations, which is when they called police, authorities said.

Tiffany Miller lives down the road and said she heard commotion Wednesday night.

"We were just sitting in our home watching TV," she said. "That is when we heard a lot of noise, and we saw police officers and stuff like that."

No injuries were reported.

Police do not believe the vehicles were intended targets or that an active shooter is involved.

    I've seen too many of his posts on here to know that he was not being sarcastic. He's as anti-firearm as they come.

    So, I'm pretty sure the quotes around responsible were meant to be taken as sarcasm. Meaning, I'm fairly certain Walter is in agreement with you that a responsible gun owner (and he probably means legal gun owner) was not responsible for this shooting. Same time; watch the friendly fire. ;)

    For the record, if I'm wrong about the sarcasm, I happen to agree with your comment.

    Might be time for area parents to invest in the Graco "Durham Edition" bulletproof child safety seat.

    "Police do not believe .....that an active shooter is involved."
    I'm sure the gun that caused this mishap discharged all by itself.

    I'll donate my next paycheck to the charity of your choice if it turns out that the gun that was used in this shooting was registered to the person who fired it. The only catch is...you have to donate yours if it wasn't. Deal?

    No doubt that a "responsible" gun owner did this.
