Cori Romero didn’t initially realize she’d been shot.

The 20-year-old was driving along Interstate 25 near Fort Collins, Colorado, on April 22, when she says she felt a pain in her neck.

“I thought that came from glass that had shattered my window,” she said.

In fact, the pain and shattered window were caused by a bullet. Police are hunting for the gunman, and authorities believe the unknown person may be linked to a series of other roadway incidents — seven other shattered car windows on or near I-25.

The gunman pulled up beside Romero’s car in a dark SUV and fired, Romero said.

“I’m still in shock,” Romero said Thursday after being released from the hospital. “You don’t really think that something like that would happen to you, just driving home from work.”

Authorities have not recovered any bullets besides the one that struck Romero. She is still recovering from her injuries.

“I’ve been lucky to be able to walk away, like literally walk away from this incident and still have my voice and still be able to do everything that I could do before,” she said.
