Three children, their mother and the family dog named Noah, were all inside the car when bullets shot through the windows.
Austin, the mother and the juveniles were not injured, however, Noah was hit with one of the bullets.
“The dog took the bullet for the kids so the kids would be safe,” said one of the witnesses.
