Two, possible three men crawled out of the BMW and car jacked a red Toyota that was stopped at the light. The lady of the Toyota needs an ambulance, she is bleeding from the head. The Toyota was last seen southbound on Barker from the freeway. (I called my neighbor. “Hey Fred, I think your car is Barker Rd. and the Interstate. It’s been in an accident.”) 06:17am – Reports of shots fired at a 24-hr check cashing store at the 24,000 Block of Interstate 55.
