Chief Inspector Scott Small: “a really harmful scenario, luckily, our Lyft driver, our sufferer wasn’t shot, as a result of he had a rifle put to him, and our Lyft driver had a weapon that he used and he shot each of the perpetrators.”
Reporter Steve Keeley: “So this case illustrates once more why so many ship drivers, meals ship drivers, pizza drivers, Uber and Lyft drivers are going to gun shops and getting authorized weapons as a result of that is what is going on every day throughout the nation.”
