The shots were landing eight inches above the driving officer’s heads.
Police Chief James White said he believes that a decoy car was used to distract the officers from drag racing. Officials say that eight shots were fired at the officers.
“This is unacceptable and we need to do something as a community,” said White in a press conference on Monday.
