    No discussion of the two men wearing masks etc to hide their identity? Did other bullets hit Alex's car?

    So many shell casings, but he survived in a condition that allowed him to make phone calls. I wonder why the attackers left? Perhaps AM had a weapon to protect himself? It would make sense, given what has happened to his family members.

    The latest news report above says he called 911 himself. It's apparently not a life threatening wound.

    He saw the men who shot him - 2 men, police found at least 10 casings at the scene.

    How many guesses do we get to determine the intent?

    They sure made sure Maggie and Paul were dead and he isn't injured enough to not be able to call his brother?Interesting.

    I hope the surviving Murdaugh brother, B, is in a safe house somewhere.

    I don't even know what to think. Are we getting the true/whole story? And is LE okay with this information being out there?

    I landed at if the intent was to be dead he likely would be

    I wonder if that church had any CCTV? The road looks very rural, wonder how busy it is.

    Either Alex has some BIG debts or this story is fishy. Two men and 10 shell casings yet Alex is still alive and not even gravely wounded? Yea.

    I’m on the same page due to the potential pending OOJ charges/ trial.
    good thing Randy wasn’t outside with the dogs.

    :eek: i mean i know it's possible, but it's so crazy to me that any gunshot wound to the head could be non-life threatening

    So who knew the 'back' road was going to be taken and the car was going to breakdown? Or could this have been planned and self-inflicted to divert attention away from the family? The killer of Mrs. Murdaugh and son were very efficient. One would think if this alleged attempt at Mr. Murdaugh was committed by the same perpetrators, he would not be alive. Very fishy.

    The only way I can think of for a wound to the head to be non-life-threatening would be if it barely grazed the scalp.

    If the bullet had impacted the skull it seems to me that there would be brain swelling from the trauma, which would be life-threatening.

    And a truck being the assailants mode of transport to fire these shots from?
    Heavy duty truck comes to mind with the mention of truck.
    Not a very good choice for a fast get away vehicle, not to mention being conspicuous.
    This whole incident sems Almost too far fetched to be true.

    IMO this is the most “freakishly bizarre” random road rage/stranger shooting or he was targeted. Either his tire was meant to go flat or he was being followed and they saw an opportunity. This is just wild though.
