Designated terrorist group CAIR is demanding an FBI hate crime investigation after the 58-year-old Somali Muslim woman was shot 13 times, but not killed.
NBC According to the police report, the woman was on her way home from work, when a blue truck pulled up next to her. Police say the driver of the truck fired 13 shots into the woman’s car, striking her four times in the back, twice in the left hand and once in the elbow. She’s recovering at a local hospital.
Back in June a Somali woman was beaten and bruised at her east Columbus apartment complex. CAIR asked investigators to look into that attack as a hate crime also.
