SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Roebuck couple got the scare of their lives Saturday evening when two strangers pulled up next to them at a Spartanburg intersection and shot out their driver's side window.

It happened on the corner of East Daniel Morgan and North Church Street.

"My husband was looking at the light, fixing to get ready to go, and all of the sudden 'BOOM,' and his window was gone," said Paula Johnson.

Paula works at Ingles on Hwy. 9. Her car is out of commission, so her husband picks her up every night in his 1992 Toyota pickup. She said she shudders to think of what could have happened when two men pulled up in a yellow Jeep Wrangler and started shooting.

"I could be burying my husband tomorrow," she said. "He leaned over on me and I started screaming because, you know, this is the love of my life; between him, and my son and my grandbaby that's all I really have."

The Johnsons said the two men smiled after shooting, and then turned left.

"We got home and we hugged each other, and we thanked God that we was able to make it home," said Paula.

She said she has not been able to sleep since the incident.

"I forgive you, I'm a forgiving person, but you know I wish they'd quit they're childish play before someone gets hurt," said Donald Johnson. He has taped Plexiglass to the window, but he will have to pay to get it fixed.

Spartanburg Police are investigating.

If you have information on the incident, call 888-CRIME-SC.
