VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN) — A Vancouver woman was threatened at gunpoint as she drove near Heritage High School in east Vancouver Tuesday.

“The driver puts his right hand out the window,” she said, “and he’s pointing a gun right at my face.”

It was a moment this woman said she’ll never forget. It was rush-hour traffic, and a man in a gold Ford Taurus was pointing a gun at her — for no apparent reason.

She is still too afraid to have her face shown after what happened to her early Tuesday evening. 

She said she left Fred Meyer’s parking lot, headed east on Northeast 76th Street toward Heritage High School. That’s when a man pulled right in front of her, stopping his car in the middle of the road.

“All I see is the barrel and the circle part pointing right at my face,” she said, “and I see his goatee.”

She told deputies what happened. Several people, she said, witnessed what happened.

Deputies took a report and as of Tuesday night are looking for a suspect. This woman and sheriff’s deputies would like anyone who may have seen this to contact the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.
