BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Bullet holes in a truck are all that a group of suspects left behind after what Baton Rouge Police are calling an attempted murder Sunday.

"I don't know why they picked this one particular house," said the almost victim who wished to be called John.

It all started Sunday night on Martin Avenue. John says he got a frantic call from his mother. She told him someone was trying to break down her door. He lives just around the corner, and says he rushed over to find a car backed into the drive way. 

"I thought to myself, well I've got them. As soon as I pulled into the driveway to confront them or whatever I heard a shot. That's when I started ducking," said John. 

A string of bullets were fired into John's truck, but luckily he wasn't hurt. The suspects drove off after that. 

John says his mother is safe, and the group didn't have time to take anything from the home. Unfortunately, he says he didn't get a good look at who was shooting or what they were driving. 

At this time, Baton Rouge Police say there are no suspects and no leads. John is hoping a witness can shed some light before someone is hurt. 

"If anyone that night seen anything to let us know or let the authorities know before them same people hurt somebody else," said John. 

Anyone with information on the shooting which happened Sunday, February 15, on Martin Avenue is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 344-STOP.
