The gunman then parked his truck up the road, he said.
“And as we were coming through the next stop sign, he was parked, and just aimed and shot in the window, and shot my friend while he was driving,” Mesa said.
The victim was suffering from a wound to the face as well as his shoulder, but was alert and talking. The man’s coworkers drove him to a safe location and got him out of the truck until paramedics arrived. Mesa used the shirt off his back to help stop the bleeding.
Police say they’re looking for the gunman, described as a Hispanic male with shoulder-length hair who was driving a white box truck.
“I’m just speechless right now. I’m at a loss for words. I’m just hoping the best for my friend,” Mesa said.
