TULSA, Oklahoma -- A Tulsa man is afraid to drive around after someone shot at his truck while he was running errands Sunday afternoon.

Lamon Hayhurst and his daughter, Alisha, were driving in the 2500 block of East Apache, heading to another daughter's place when the incident happened. Hayhurst said an older model red Ford truck got behind him and turned the blinker on to get on Highway 75.

As the red truck was turning toward the on-ramp, Hayhurst says he heard an explosion.

"I thought maybe somebody had threw something and hit the back of it and I got to looking. That's when I found the bullet," he said.

The Hayhursts didn't recognize the truck, didn't see who was inside and didn't get the license plate.

"Too scared to even think, I was shaking really bad," Alisha said. "Hope it comes back around to them, whoever it was."

Hayhurst says he wasn't speeding, didn't cut anyone off and can't imagine having that big of an enemy.

"What are people supposed to do? Buy bulletproof vehicles to drive around town?" Hayhurst said. "You shouldn't even have to worry about driving out there on the street and have somebody come over, get behind you and then shoot at you for no reason."

Hayhurst and his daughter weren't injured in the shooting. He said it will cost him $400 to replace the window.

If you have any information about the shooting, call Crime Stoppers at 596-COPS.
