Pellet Gun Shattered the Window of a Vehicle on in Gilroy, and the Slug Nicked a 7-year old Girl

Somebody with a pellet gun shattered the window of a vehicle on Wednesday in Gilroy, and the slug nicked a 7-year old girl, lodging in her hair. It happened near the intersection of Santa Teresa Boulevard and Fitzgerald Avenue just north of the city limits. The sheriff’s office confirms that a minivan was shot at on Santa Teresa Boulevard at about 9:45 a.m. Thursday.

But the driver of that minivan is convinced other vehicles are being shot at there, and she wants to let the community know about it. “I pulled over and was holding a towel to her head, and I didn’t know what was wrong,” said Leslie Oxley, whose car was hit by a pellet gun.

Oxley had just passed through the intersection of Santa Teresa Boulevard and Fitzgerald Avenue, northbound on Santa Teresa, when somebody took a shot at her minivan.
