A drive by shooting in Colorado Springs leaves one woman splintered with shards of glass and several others shaken up.

The shooting happened late Friday afternoon and the victims say they have no idea who the gunman was.

The victims say it happened in the Gunther Toody's parking lot near Woodmen and Powers.

The victims say there were five of them inside a car when a blue car with three people in it, two men and one woman, pulled up next to them and started firing several rounds of bullets at them. The victims say the suspects then quickly drove off.

Less than half an hour after the shooting, the victims were pulled over by police. The victims say, police thought they were the ones who were firing the bullets.

"He set off five rounds," said Desiree Splitter, one of the victims.

"I was terrified," said Brittney Ponger, another one of the victims.

Ponger showed 11 News the splinters of glass in her arm and she described the bullet fragments in her leg.

"I could be dead right now if I didn't pull my seat back like I did," said Ponger.

The scary part is, the victims say, they have no idea who the shooter was or why they were shooting at them.

The victims say if they laid eyes on the suspects again, they'd recognize them.

Police say the incident is an ongoing investigation even though they have little information.
