KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A local woman is sending out a warning after her father and his friend were shot at in traffic by a total stranger.

It happened in the middle of the day near 350 Highway and 63rd Street.

Stacy Reed’s dad and his best friend are both in their 60s. 

Reed said they were heading to HyVee for groceries - when a red sedan pulled up beside them. The rear passenger shot directly at them, then the car sped away. The passenger window next to her dad was shattered.

The driver was wearing a cowboy hat and police found two bullet holes in the top, just inches from striking him in the head.

"They thought they were shot," Reed said. “My father gets out of the house once a month. And the day he gets out, this is what happens.”

It was especially upsetting on the week she’s been dealing with what would have been her son’s 26th birthday.

Her son died from an asthma attack.

Her dad and his friend were too upset to talk about what happened to them here, but Reed wanted other people to be aware.

“It’s rough now just knowing my father has went through it," Reed said. "But at the same time, I’m happy that he’s at home safe.”

Reed says when police saw the cowboy hat with bullet holes, they told her dad’s friend he should buy a lottery ticket because he should count himself lucky.

The description of the suspects provided is vague - four young men, possibly teens, in a red 4-door sedan.
