Woman speaks out after being shot on freeway in Benicia

A woman was shot and wounded on a freeway in Benicia while driving to work before dawn Thursday.

"I'm on my way to work. I don't expect to get shot!" the 31-year-old Vallejo woman told KTVU as she waited in the emergency room at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek.

"They got right on the side of me and matched my speed of my car, and started shooting at me," said the woman, who did not want to be identified.

She said the shooter fired from a black car with a busted-up window.

"When they started matching my speed, I looked over, and all I could see was that jacked-up window, and they started shooting at me," she said. 

The woman was shot in the leg and butt. Her Nissan Versa ended up on an embankment.

Ashley Davis, the victim's cousin said, "This one right here, it wasn't time for her to go, she got her mom, she got angels in the sky."

Davis said this latest freeway shooting hits too close to home.

 "To know that she was on her way to work, and to be shot on the way to do something productive, which she enjoys, it just feels, like I got anxiety," Davis said. 

The victim's aunt Alicia Carter said, "She's a good kid, a really good kid, and she did not deserve that."

Carter said she believes her niece may have been targeted because she drives slowly.

 "She drives like an old lady. And so she was saying that she was driving, she thought she was going too slow because they were trailing her really close," Carter said.

I-780 is two lanes in each direction, and it's possible the victim was unknowingly in the path of a speeding car. 

"She decided to go faster, and they started matching her speed, and then that's when they got on the side, her left side of her, and began shooting her," Carter said.

The women had these messages for those responsible.

Carter said, "Get a real life for yourself. You shooting somebody, you don't even know who you shooting at."

Davis said, "You will be caught and you will be found, and we will have justice
