Man hit by stray bullet while stopped at a red light

55-year-old Lee Wallace of Austin, Texas was driving to work to pick up bagels and make deliveries when he was shot while stopped at a red light. The shot came from a gathering of people in a nearby Wendy's parking lot. Wallace was not involved in the incident that sparked the shooting and was not the intended target.
Wallace was shot in the neck and was able to pull his car off the road and flag down a police officer. According to his son, "Luckily the bullet missed both arteries and did not sever his spinal cord." He said his father has sever throat damage but is conscious and has a tracheotomy.
Police are looking for the people involved. No arrests have been made.
Ohh shoot.
