Many others chimed in on the post, saying something similar had recently happened to others they know as well.

Community members say they believe a gray-colored Nissan Altima coupe is the vehicle seen in the video as glass shatters, hoping whoever responsible will be held accountable.

One member compiled photos and videos of 13 cars that were hit, with the suspect vehicle in sight.

When reporting the damage, victims were asked to call 3-1-1 and were told they'd hear back soon.
