As a St. Paul resident had stopped at the intersection of West 45th Street and France Ave South on Sunday, she heard "a loud noise," according to a report filed by Minneapolis police officers.
She looked around, couldn't discover the sound, and drove off. When she arrived at home around 1:50 p.m., however, she realized her vehicle's back window was covered in a spiderweb of cracks. A small, hole had been punched out.
According to the police report, the driver suspected someone on the sidewalk had thrown something at her car using a slingshot, or fired at her with a BB gun.
