    A woman said her rear passenger-side window shattered after someone fired a BB or pellet gun at her car.

    Police say at least four people reported being shot at with a BB or pellet gun in west Fort Worth.

    All four shootings occurred in the intersection of Bryant Irvin Road and West Vickery Boulevard, three of them on Friday.

    One victim, who did not want to be identified, said she was driving her 13-year-old son to school.

    "We were at the red light and heard three booms hit our car, and at first, I thought it was maybe water balloons or rocks, and then this window started to shatter and I realized that it was gunshots," she said.

    The pellets shattered the passenger-side back window, barely missing her son, who was sitting in the front seat.

    "I shudder to think about what would have happened if I'd had a child in the backseat," she said.

    Jennifer Chandler said her vehicle was hit on Oct. 15 when she was driving home at about 10 p.m. with her daughter in the backseat. She said her passenger-side front window fell in "all of a sudden."

    "I didn't really quite know what was going on," she said. "I thought maybe a rock hit my window; I really didn't know. I did see a little round hole in my windshield, too."

    A school bus was hit in another incident, according to police reports.

    No one has been seriously injured.

    Fort Worth police are asking anyone with information in case to call Crime Stoppers at 817-469-8477.
